Solution to using traveler under load??

Older boats used to have a bar for a traveler. The lower sheet block was attached to a ring around the bar. The ring had lines attached to it that allowed the sheet block to be moved to port or stbd. I sailed on a boat with this set up and it worked smoothly. I think it would be cheaper to make something like that from a stainless rod and some fittings.
