If I remember correctly, this is an antique design used by Bump and Jump a long time ago.
Although I never have used Fone's, I still have an old B&J CL somewhere. It was a much worse design than most modern systems. Besides having to pull the release toward you (probably while on top of it), the velcro mess sometimes would snag on some spreader bars.
When I saw the Fone system at an event a couple of months ago, I could not believe that anyone still used such an obsolete system.
Additionally, I dislike QRs which prefer operation by one hand or the other in case the preferred hand is disabled.
