Default Overthinking a Problem

Working with sheet goods, I normally rip the length of the sheet for the width needed and then cross-cut to length - UEG followed by Cabinet Maker, although I have to admit that I used to use my RAS to cut parts within it's capacity before I sold it to make room for my PBB (an upcoming project). I've always struggled a little with the Cabinet Maker as you seem to need three hands - left one to hold the track down to stop it lifting from the weight of the saw, right one to guide the saw onto the track and the other right one to lift the guard so the base would sit down on the track. After struggling with it yesterday cutting a stack of parts, I started to think about a solution - and was thinking, " I need a short piece of connecter to slip under the track and then make and attach an L-shaped piece to the bottom of the connector so I can just slide it towards me and hook the back of the part...................". And then a little light came on. See photos attached, can't get much simpler than that - although the sliding hook under the track would have been way more elegant.
