Hmm... maybe a bit more complex

1) ... put a leader to your second strut that is about on level with other leaders at the kite end.

2) Use a line that is about same lenght as your flying lines, it does not need to be as thick as the other flying lines.

3) Use a leader at the boom end that is about one meter longer than your other leaders at boom end. Make sure that you can quick release this leader if the fifth line goes around the kite (when kite stalls and comes from the sky). This leader should be farily thick (4mm) so that it is easy to pull from that leader. Connect it to your front line attachment point but make sure that it does not disturb the safety.

Rgds,
