In that case I use a yoke. Loop the tagline around one element, down the
boom and then down the other element - with both sides tied together forming
a sort of triangle. I'd suggest using some polypropylene since it's
relatively stiff and won't tend to get hung up somewhere as you're unrigging
it up on
the tower. Or use 2 taglines that go up the element and then tied to the
center of the boom so you can reach it to unrig. One person can handle both
taglines without much problem which is better than having 2 amateurs manning
taglines. One of them will invariably want to pull too hard.
