In 1:1 mode you can push the bar out past the over-ride and let go of the bar, with the 2:1 you may have to keep the over-ride engaged and let the bar rest against the over-ride. Either way the kite will settle down on the edge of the window and sit there forever (as long as the wind is not really light or it isn't sitting in water with a strong current).
Once you kite is sitting there with no input from you, you can start the self landing. There are a couple ways to do this. One is to attach your chicken loop to something solid, like a post, car hitch, sandbag, etc. Then just walk up to the kite and grab it. The other way is if you don't have something solid. Always keeping tension on the center lines you can grab onto the power strap (not the bar!!), unhook from the chicken loop and leash and lay it on the ground. Then by maintaining tension on the front lines, climb up the front lines until you get to the kite. The whole time your kite will wait at 9 or 3 until you get to it.
