Mark, I really need to change the email address associated with this site, since I never check the damned thing. It turned into a spam account, so I opened a new one. If can find where to do that, I'll be able to keep up with what's going on. I've also joined linkedin and have been active on there.

Looking for the link to the video.

I'm retired, and looking for new opportunities, but what we used was the "First Man Up" device to attach to the overhead steel. I'd like to see how your setup works for future reference.
