Not for packing chutes either...I think...but it does align four things...And the user must be trusted to get it right...or it could be fatal....I need a cup of coffee!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't say it wasn't used when packing parachutes, but that is really a broad scope, as it performs an exact function. That would have been like saying your item was used in farming, UB. Sure, but what does it do?
It does not align, but is used when other things are aligned.
And YT, kind of the opposite.

And you can find them on the internet if you know how to narrow down your search.....

No, nothing to do with deployment.
Refer back to what I told YT.
