The SkyTie is used after you have a fully open and functional canopy.
As you watch for canopy traffic, collapse your slider and slowly bring the slider down to the base of the risers, behind your head. Stow the slider between the loop of fabric between the magnets. Release your steering lines and fly your canopy.
When you lay down your canopy to pack, unstow the slider from SkyTie. Put your Slider and SkyTie back to their normal positions.
This is not a gadget for all skydivers. Consult with your local DZO, S&TA, instructors and peers before using the SkyTie. The SkyTie can cause a delay during a cutaway if the slider is stowed in the device.
