The chute should't deploy while going up the line if there's slight tension on the bungee and the plane is not flying towards the staked end because the plane is "dragging" the chute through the air. The relative wind of the chute is closer to 90 degrees to it vs 180 for normal chute operation.

I would recommend against an extension after the chute as it could pose more trouble than good really. Just practice to come off the line with some tension on the bungee.
