Yes I have installed a safety climb on a Rohn 55g. How ever I'm just an 
installation guy so I didn't order the parts.
But if I were looking,,,,I'd contact Radian. I'm sure they have what you need. 
I myself use a DBI Sala cable grab with a swivel attachment point to hook onto 
the cable and myself. The Sala is not a personal preference or anything,,just 
easy to come by for a tower hand as most if not all new commercial towers come 
with one as well as a fall arrest harness and a carabiner. Cell tech's are not 
allowed to climb so they have no use for the equipment.
Its a very wise investment and you are to be commended for your interest. 
They're life savers for sure and not all that expensive when you consider the 
alternatives. And,, IMHO these things would be easy to fabricate in your garage 
once you have a picture and a parts list to go by. Just shy away from any parts 
that say MADE IN CHINA as they may be coated with lead based paint...and made 
of softer weaker steel than US manufactured stuff.

Has anyone ever added a safety cable to a Rohn 55G tower?  

What I am describing is the sort of cable one clips to, using a gizmo like this 

If you've done this, or know of it being done, could you provide a pointer to
