opening above the release lever, & add a grab ball (<1") or ring. It
also helps to attach the well-bungeed kite leash to the ball (with a
quick release) since that keeps upward tension on the line, which
needs to be pulled downward to release.
*or similar very strong line, because if it catches on something it
can get pulled VERY hard in the wrong (non-release) direction,
breaking any weaker line & leaving you with no release line (still
possible but relatively quite difficult to move the lever by hand).
