Should dislocates with the stick have always felt awkward for me as well, especially on the coming back part. I don't really understand Siff's pulley stretch, especially the second one, but I have come to believe that stretching without strengthening the muscles in the elongated positions is not optimal for either flexibility or injury prevention.
Bungee cord, therabands, anything really that gives resistance as it stretches works pretty well.

Coming back = no no as far as I'm concerned (as previously stated ).
