Opinions wanted on the Snap on Lunge Caveson

Has anybody used a snap on lunge caveson like this one at Dover?Snap-On™ Lunge Caveson | Dover Saddlery I'm looking for Pros and cons, or if you think they are just a waste of money and I should just get a regular lunge caveson. I cant' even think of how this would go, does it snap on to the bit? Do you still use the bit?

Just wondering...

Looks like a nicer version of a lungeing attachment, in which case it would snap on to each ring of the bit under the horse's chin. You would then attach the lunge line to the ring in the middle, so you get equal pressure on both sides of the bit.

I've never used one, but I don't think it would be all that better than running one side of the lunge line through the bit ring, over the poll, and hooking the snap on the other side (except that you don't need to change when you change directions). I prefer to not attach the lunge line to a bit at all when I lunge.

It should go on the halter. But by using a halter there is no way to stop it from turning on the horse's head. That is why a good lunge caveson has steel in the noseband and extra straps.

Another option is you loop the line around one cheek piece, go over the nose loop around the other cheek piece and clip at the bottom. It doesn't really move the bit at all and you don't need to keep switching it over like you would clipping to the bit. This is also the method they have us do for coaching exams.
