Back-foot outside edge stops

Can someone help me with specific skating tips/technique on how to stop using the OUTSIDE edge of your back skate?

I find that 90% (if not 100%) of my hockey stop is performed by the front foot. I still stop fine, but I know it should be more like 60/40 not 90/10 and I want to get a better feel for my back foot outside edge when stopping.

I tried shifting my weight more to the back foot but it doesn't seem to work for me. Also tried doing T-stops but don't have much success with those too... clearly my technique is not right.

Also, I'd like to be able to stop exclusively on my back foot (front foot in the air) -- the way players stop to jump onto the bench at the end of a shift.

I've looked around but can't find much on the back-foot technique... if anyone has tips, please share.

Thanks!
Jim
