Turn around and get up to standing on the bar (facing the platform). At the frontend, let go of the fly cables and catch the cradle catcher (who will be in front of you). As you swing down with them you will need to pick up your feet so that they don't hit the fly bar as it swings back.

The catcher will probably be very close for this trick and so the catch often happens with bent arms. This combined with the bent legs required after the catch to prevent hitting the fly bar doesn't make it a very beautiful trick.
