Rappel Station set up 16-Jun-2019 At 7:17:30 PM bagotup

Mikl has an interesting idea in his 2011 Bolting Guide where U bolts are placed horizontally at a rap station. One U bolt being (200mm, recommended by S.Hís Thesis) above the other. The top U bolt has a shackle on it, this moves for each rappel to allow for distributed wear on the U bolts.

For me, this setup needs lots of holes in the rock and is not equalised. Some links of chain off the top U bolt could fix the equalisation issue. By this stage the set up may start looking a bit odd though, and the cost is passing the $20 mark if you use the cheaper gal chain & shackle.

Has anyone used a rap station like this in the real world? If so, How is it holding up ?

Is there any other safe, price friendly rap station set ups out there climbers are happy enough to use?
