The picture above, posted by RickiI is the type I used when I was learning (Non Wichard), but ... they simply do not release...
...at least with a normal chicken loop, you can power up the kite and unhook when hideously overpowered, or go for a body drag (which makes it easier to unhook)...

Mel, the 2 yellow lines in pic C are the kite centrelines. What is the line heading towards the top right-hand corner?
Do you have a regular chicken loop off the bottom of the picture?
Yeah Mel you are right again (priv joke)
I messed up the names of the shackle types. Coming from comp sailing I use only the trigger snap and call it just
a snap shackle

It looks to me that you do use the chicken loop with this system. When you fully extend your arms and then PUNCH hard against the release mechanism it releases (probably a pin type mechanism)
I have not seen it in real life pbut that what I can make of it so far.
I would like to see it though. Looks good. If anyone has tried it please report.
