Bungee ball to hold slider

You usually don't sew them but wrap them around the reserve flap.

I don't use a bungee but a magnetic variant (at least it will release at some point during the cutaway)

I like the magnetic but not a fan of putting anything on the reserve flap. R.I. makes a magnetic that is attached to a fabric loop sewn to the trim on the yoke. No interaction with the reserve flap and very effective. I'm sure a field installation can be performed with this or any similar design.

Do you know of any incidents where this might have contributed?
(the concern is perfectly understandable and logical of course, just curious)

I do not, and it may not be a problem at all. I'm just a bit nervous about anything that could foul a deployment, and putting an elastic band around the flap adds an element that could come into play under unusual circumstances.

I'd love to hear other folks' experiences.

I use the same bungee which installed between leg-straps, two long rubber bands and a ball from Guinness beer can

Can you describe it a bit more detailed for us who never saw this setup in person. How do you set it up on rig and how do you attach a slider to it.
Maybe even a picture if you don't mind.
