- use a prussik if you desire ...

- if no prussik ... it is never a bad idea to tie off the belay device prior to taking off yr leash as the above shown in the link above, youll just be doing it with 2 strands as 1, and clip a biner in the bight

- if yr taking a decent amount of time you can always tie off the device mid rap ...

- with the mammut alpine smart, its not totally hands free ... but i never worry about prussiks anymore ... YMMV

- its often a good idea to know how to tie a kleimheist as well so you can use a "prussik" with webbing should you have no cord

- the way you described is pretty standard, most people i see just do it that way
