This is probably the safest rig there is, because the lead can come off so easy in comparison with others, especially if the lead is the Split inline Lead.
The pictures below are to show you how the rig is compiled bit by bit, and how it works.
The picture below shows you the Swivel Housing Tube, that runs through the inside of the Inline Lead, and
then once placed through, you slide the Anti-Tangle Tubing Connector over the other end of the Swivel
Housing Tube.

And then it will look like the next picture below when you have connected the Anti-Tangle Tubing. Which in
most cases I have seen, it is usually cut to about 12 Inches long.

Then you slide your line from your rod right through the Anti-Tangle Tubing and through the Swivel Housing Tube until the line comes out of the end like in the picture below, then tie the Swivel to the Line using a
Palomar knot.

When you pull the line tight from the rod side, the Swivel will pull in and sit out of the Housing showing just 1 side enough to clip on a Hooklink like in the picture below.

In this picture below, you can see where you clip in this case a fastlink clip, enabling you to change the hooklink to any selection you have with different braid and hook sizes, making this alot quicker then keep breaking down to change hooklinks. Anf how you clip it to the Swivel to make a complete setup.

In this picture below, you can see the whole hooklink with a fastlink clip connected at the end, well if you do not have any of these clips, you change the way you setup, you slide your line from your rod right through the Anti-Tangle Tubing and through the Swivel Housing Tube until the line comes out of the end like in the picture below, then you tie the Line using a Palomar knot to the Swivel of the hooklink instead of just a Swivel.

The picture below shows the components you need to make one of these type rigs. It consists of a Saftey Lead Clip, an Anti-Tangle Tubing Connector and some Anti-Tangle Tubing, and a Swivel, only if you do not use fastlink clips like in the picture above. In this case you just tie the hooklink Swivel to your line instead.

The line from the rod and reel goes always first through the Anti-Tangle Tubing,and then the Anti-Tangle Tubing Connector, and then the Saftey Lead Clip. And then the Lead slides over the clip like in the picture below.

In the picture below, it shows you where the Lead sits when you have correctly fitted it, and then you slide on the Anti-Tangle Tubing Connector and some Anti-Tangle Tubing. Int the picture below you will notice that the Anti-Tangle Tubing Connector is not fully slid on, this is to improve the safety, making it easier to release in a problem, because putting it on fully, can make it more of a problem to break down, it will still be quite a job for you to lose the weight by the way it is configured, so no worrying about losing the Lead every 5 minutes, because this will not happen.

By using a Palomar knot, you can attach a Swivel to the line through the end of your rig, if you use Fastlink Clips, if you do not use them, then tie the Swivel from your Hooklink, directly to the Line instead, and this will sit in the end of the Safety Lead Clip Housing, just like in the picture below.

The picture below shows where the Hooklink goes. In this picture the setup has a Fastlink Clip, for anyone who does not know about them, it makes it easier to change Hooklinks, one after another, in a very short time, should I want a different size hook for example, because normal tactics are not working the same.

The last picture below shows how the setup looks completed.
