" Lanyards " as in positioning lanyards ?  or  what I assume you mean fall 
arrest safety lanyards ?
The Fall arrest safety lanyard hopefully has a safety hook with a minimum 
throat opening of 2 1/2 in. The will fit main virtual tubes from Rohn 25G  is 
5/16 DI  Z  brace rod  !!! 45 & 55 are 7/16 , better but still iffy  65G is 5/8 
better and IMHO would not fail with the 200 lb @ 6 ft shock force but I still 
use the side rail :)
IMHO the Z rung is not a place to attach your  life line, BTW  not a place to 
secure you positioning lanyard . My. 02 I am sure that someone from out 
fraternity has there slide rule out and can  explain the moments generated  and 
the shear properties of the rod OD
