Greetings, TowerTalkians --

    Here's a chance to share your experience with the rest of us. What's your 
favorite tower construction tip? What do you do that makes your tower work 
easier, safer, faster, etc.? 

    I'll start with a couple even though it puts me over-quota - hi.

    Ever notice how parts seem to disappear in the bottom of your tool bag? I 
like to have two tool pouches (bolt bags) on my belt - one for tools (left) 
and the other for parts (right). Saves lots of hassle.

    A tower climber's best friends are carabiners and slings. You can use 
them for just about anything; i.e. pulling a mast up safely and easily, 
attaching just about ANYTHING, holding something temporarily in a second 
without dropping a part (like a clevis). I climb with around a dozen of each 
and sometimes doing something tricky I use EVERY PIECE I've got with me. 

    Okay, now it's your turn.
