You put your hands under it so that if the Sacrament falls it lands on the cloth and you don't inadvertently touch it, but still could catch it and prevent it from hitting the floor.

The only place I've ever seen one is St. John Cantius in Chicago.

In the good old times it was the duty of one of the altar servers to turn it over the rail before communion, and turn back to hanging position (in the side of the altar) after the communion.

That is how it is done at the TLMs that I attend.
