      Remove the stock release line. Tie a loop of Q-Power* through the
      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).
