Where's the Mussy?

You wouldn't need both lockers IMHO. Just a single non locker really.

The other two pics have the Mussys, This one is meant to show the simplicity of going from tr to rap. I'll take redundancy any day. Stuff fails. It's the nature of the beast.

Not to be overly argumentative, but, you have the rope through both chain links on the bottom...and, the carabiners are a great idear to keep the wear off the chain. Methinks there's a higher chance of your locking carabiner jamming its locking sleeve than either chain link failing. Just seems overly difficult to clean especially, but, nice for wear and tear on the anchor.

A set of short quickdraws might make rope pull/TRing easier too, and, still be a way to keep the wear off the anchor.

I wish more folks would rig the to keep wear off top anchors...great to show this in your photo!

An easy fix is to use long draws, which would hang below the actual Mussy Hooks, et al.

Anchor rigged to keep tr from rubbing on links. The links could be replaced with Mussys.
