Really?! (a) You clip your daisy or PAS into a screwgate on the anchor.....
or...... (b) you have your climbing rope that you're already tied to (and is nice and stretchy) and attach it to said screwgate with a clovehitch (which is infinitely adjustable and takes all of 1 second).
I'm pretty sure option b is faster, more convenient and doesn't require extra equipment ... which I think is what the original post was referring to. I see people using these things, just don't understand why.
