What the heck? Can't Post

What the heck is going on here? See the photo.

I came down from a jump, dropped my gear on the hanger floor, and when I started to pack I noticed this cord hanging out from under my reserve pilot chute. The rig is a Racer. There seems to be some loose and missing tack cord in one spot around the perimeter of the pilot chute hat, where it is attached to the top of the pilot chute spring.

Yes, I will have my rigger fix it. No, I didn't jump any more that day.

But I would like to get some opinions here of what this is, so that I can understand what's going on, and talk intelligently to my rigger about it.

Thank you.
