Lemma 17.11.8. Let $(X, \mathcal{O}_ X)$ be a ringed space. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a finitely presented $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. Let $x \in X$ such that $\mathcal{F}_ x \cong \mathcal{O}_{X, x}^{\oplus r}$. Then there exists an open neighbourhood $U$ of $x$ such that $\mathcal{F}|_ U \cong \mathcal{O}_ U^{\oplus r}$.

**Proof.**
Choose $s_1, \ldots , s_ r \in \mathcal{F}_ x$ mapping to a basis of $\mathcal{O}_{X, x}^{\oplus r}$ by the isomorphism. Choose an open neighbourhood $U$ of $x$ such that $s_ i$ lifts to $s_ i \in \mathcal{F}(U)$. After shrinking $U$ we see that the induced map $\psi : \mathcal{O}_ U^{\oplus r} \to \mathcal{F}|_ U$ is surjective (Lemma 17.9.4). By Lemma 17.11.3 we see that $\mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(\psi )$ is of finite type. Then $\mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(\psi )_ x = 0$ implies that $\mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(\psi )$ becomes zero after shrinking $U$ once more (Lemma 17.9.5).
