I've not been in the habit of using a prusik when abseiling because it seems to add complexity and I'd rather die suddenly than hang from a rope for days with a flock of crows circling.

But I tried Peteclimbs' suggestion at home and it works just fine. ( Abseil device on lanyard, French prusik below it attached to your harness tie-in loop) You can also use the end of the lanyard to hang your drill from, which is more comfortable than hanging it from your body. I think I'll do this in the future.

Another way I tried was having a conventional prusik attached to both the first and second loops in a daisy chain lanyard and attached to the rope above the abseil device. That way, you can put your foot in the end of the lanyard to get some slack in the rope and you can easily start prusiking up if need be.
