This trick is inspired by the trick of the same name on the Double Trapeze.

Flyer 1 swings out and gets up to sitting on the bar. As Flyer 1 swings back to the platform in a sitting position, Flyer 2 jumps onto the bar, hanging from her hands underneath it. She crosses her legs around Flyer 1's ankle, then lets go of the bar and rests her head on Flyer 1's other foot, so she is lying horizontally. Then, at the frontend, she turns a little and catches the catcher.

Either flyer can wear safety lines (Regular Lines) for this trick, but not both. While it makes most sense for Flyer 2 to wears the lines as they are the ones making the catch, the lines may impeded their position. Therefore, it is usually performed without lines.
