This isn't really an innovation, it's a very old method of tying off the sled for hookup. It is totally reliable: never breaks, never comes unhooked unexpectedly. Additionally, it's extremely easy to turn the team loose when you're ready--no jammed knots or frozen quick releases.
The only thing that's different about our "stick" is that we use 3/4" ID Electrical Conduit for the stick. It's smooth, easy to drill for the pull rope and the keeper rope (not shown). The bottom edge is ground slightly to remove rough edges and give it a bit of a taper.
