Checklist and scissors pocket assembly, Beta cloth, designed to strap around the leg of a space-suited astronaut, comprising 2 bags. The larger bag is 9 by 7 by 2 inches, and has a large Velcro-sealed flap, a metal snap-button on the interior flap, and a label on the back reading "Part No. A7L-201123-01, S/N 024, Code Ident. 74897." The smaller bag is 9 by 3 inches and of similar design. A plastic tab is attached to its snap-button, with a 45-inch long brown nylon lanyard designed to be tied to the scissors. The tab is printed with "SDB 42100118-702, SN 1054." The 2 pockets are stitched onto twin 30-inch belts that allow placement around the space suit leg and are held in place by velcro connectors looping through 2 rectangular metal rings.
A space-suit leg strap-on checklist and scissors pocket assembly used by Fred Haise during the Apollo 13 flight. Accompanied by a Typed Letter Signed by Fred W. Haise, which reads in part: "This pocket checklist assembly was strapped over my right space suited leg during launch and over my IVA coveralls at most other times during the Apollo 13 flight. The smaller pocket held my flight scissors. The brown lanyard was used to help secure those scissors during the weightless conditions of space flight. I used the scissors primarily to open food packages. Jim Lovell and Jack Sweigert used our flight scissors to manufacture the make-shift Lithium Hydroxide canister to reduce the carbon dioxide build-up in the Lunar Module. The assembly was a very useful component of our personal flight equipment."
