{Stus-List} Flag halyard ideas?

I use two methods - 
My flag halyard has two brass snap hooks on each end, attach each end to the
top and bottom of the flag, pull it up, tension and tie off.
I also have some of these, which are quite slick.

I'm thinking about redoing my flag halyard.  I want more flexibility for
different sized flags and more flags.  
Right now my flag halyard has 2 pairs of brass snaphooks at set intervals
which never seem to be right.  Also, the brass snaphooks add undesirable
weight aloft.
As a former Navy member, I'm familiar with the system used on US Navy ships,
which puts a single snaphook on the halyard and a ring to clip it to then
the same on each flag.  The snaphook and ring are disconnected and flags are
added as desired.  The halyard grows in length with the number of flags
added.  This seems to work well.
Are there any other slick ideas out there?
