Dropped toggle - recovery procedure? Can't Post

"What do you do if you drop a toggle as you are about to flare?"

I have never heard any discussion about contingency plans for that issue (although I haven't been to any canopy control classes). So I'm curious what comes to peoples' minds or what they have practiced in the past.

Clearly it is a situation best avoided in the first place through good procedures, so that for example the toggle doesn't come out of your hand when transitioning from front risers or rear risers.

I've got my own ideas, which I put into place one time when I dropped a toggle. It's not like the ideas are all that difficult to figure out, but I'd like to see what others think before offering a suggestion.
