Would these work: http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-1|118|103371|311571|311611&id=2558
The price is good Two of these would only run $105.

Knothead, could you elaborate on what you use for locking the line?

I considered the mast mate ladder - not a problem in terms of inserting slides, since I have to remove mainsail slides every time I drop it anyway. But I am not sure how much more secure I'd feel on a ladder vs. hanging on a rope (though subjectively ladder feels more "normal")
