Pictures of open Reserve Container Can't Post

It would be nice if someone knows a link or could post some pictures that show a open reserve container, so that I can see how the chute is stowed and get an idea of how it works.
I know how the rest of the gear works, but since I ultimately have to depend on the reserve I am kind of curious what it looks like inside the reserve compartment.

The manuals of containers and/or reserve canopies describe the process of reserve packing, usually with a picture each step.
You can download these manuals from most of the manufacturer websites.

If you don't have your own container yet, here's the UPT Vector 3 for exapmle:

Hope I could help.

According to your website the "Putting in the free bag" up to "Paperwork" part is done twice.
That's absolutely much work for 40, ehm 50$ Laugh
