I always stall mine from 12 o clock, but if you have enough room you can stall them from 3 or 9 o'clock as well. In stronger winds this can work well.

It allows for easier landing. It also means you can teather the strap to something upwind to easily walk to the kite once landing.
For the most precise landing, pulling the strap with the kite at the zenith will give you a very precise landing spot. But that method isn't desirable when well powered. You can get lofted/dragged. The 45 deg land is safer but is more difficult to land the kite without it on the ground to the down wind position.
I have done a teathered land at the edge of the window before when there is limited down wind room. Teather the chicken loop to something. Get the kite to about 11. Then let go of the bar and run to the kite and catch the wing tip as it drops to the ground. You then flag it out and job done.

I like 5th lines on my flysurfer, but it is more of an issue in higher winds where it is nice to put the kite on the safety once landed.
