[TowerTalk] Rebar Positioning Assembly

What do you tower climbers use for lanyards and connecting hardware?  I 
recently bought a harness but the lanyard is a fall restraint lanyard 
from the back.  I have seen rope lanyards used but they look to be way 
too long for best position holding on a tower.  I have been looking at 
and for a crocodile clamp style anchor like a Rebar positioning assembly 
like this

FallTech 8250 Rebar Positioning Assembly - Swivel Steel Rebar Hook with 
25" Gate Opening, Clevis-Pin Steel Snap Hooks, Grade 80 Chain, 23"

or similar: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NPV6FFK

Granted I am not an ironworker trying to anchor to an 18 bar wall but it 
looked like a good lanyard to be easily clipped around a leg or cross 
brace and keep me closer into the tower rather than leaning back 3 feet 
like rope lanyards.

Any thoughts or comments?

Thank you.
