Dont think it does anything special, other than just being clean.
Here's what i did. Wanted a larger loop to add some length from harnass to the bar.
And then connect 1 leash to both rings.

mainly curiosity was the reason i ask.

it looks like there is no QR and the ????IDS line comes inside. maybe a nice big (that actaully works) swivel?

The white part should be the quick release.
And looks like he is attached to a "5th" line.

The CL looks like it is the one off the Advance bar


@blacktip: nice CL I love those big ones, unfortunately they are getting harder to find. Do you happen to have a secret source?
