    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.
