2.1 Meter 2-Line safety release modification from straps to a cross bar.

I recently purchased an HQ 2.1 Symphony Beach, (misnamed as it is an open cell), and wanted to modify it so that a safety factor is built in for lighter weight flyers...not much of a problem for myself at 160 lbs...but my girlfriends nephews would like to try it while out on their Easter visit here on the "Hampton Shores" in NY.
I've read of some other recommended mods when installing a cross bar, (it presently only has straps), but there are some differences of opinion about what kind of safety strap, and exactly where to properly attach it to insure "flagging", rather than a "dragging spiral".
Any recommendations or opinions? I'd love to see my girlfriends nephews fly - safely!
