PatrickMcGovern is on a distinguished road
The ATN Web site, suggests it can be used with both Asyms and conventional symetrical chutes:

The ATN difference is worth it.
The patented "Tacker" has been developed to control the tack of the cruising spinnaker (asymmetric) by fastening it over the furled headsail and it allows you to use your conventional (symmetric) spinnaker like an asymmetric spinnaker from beam reaching to broad reaching without the need of the spinnaker pole

I have not tried it but hope to this year.
