To hook bands to.
If you want to know more, read up on jump stretch bands.

I just use it on speed deads. I might see if i can do a floorpresss in it too.
I have a different setup on squats. I just use heavy db's.

what's the difference though between using bands to add resistance and using more weight.

The resistance caused by adding more weight is uniform across the entire ROM of the lift. By using bands/chains you get resistance that follows a slope - resistance gradually increases through your ROM (more resistance during the ascent of the squat, less as you descent).
