No need for those line gadgets. I've used this technique for several years. Foolproof if you pay just a little attention to what you're doing.

Even more fool proof, leave your bar on.

I clean my control bar with potable water ever time I ride, salt water maybe corrode stainless steal. How do you do?

Can't really see the point. Might save 30 seconds if you're unlucky enough to have a slight tangle.
Where do you put the gadget once you've laid out your lines? I don't have any pockets on my wetty.

If he can afford a van like he's got to have breakfast
He can afford bar and lines attached to his kite
Actually to all his kites
Save the poor clip to keep the air out of cereal bag to keep them fresh for the next day
Ridiculous
If there is something to learn from ram air folks is to keep and have the lines on all the time
Heck my car is junk 19 years old with holes patched with duck tape
But I got my priorities straight
7 LEI's with lines on
No gadget
No brainer
No errors
Pack it up with couple feet of lines out of LE
Rinse if you need
I don't even bother with that
My bar don't ever get dirty or go on the sand when wet after session
It goes on kite canopy then on surfboard
Then on top of folded kite
It will be dry by morning
The end
Time for beer
:beer:
