Three shackle tether

I'm going offshore again. At age 62, and as I am less agile than I was, I want to clip on.

I just purchased a 3 shackle tether.

One quick release shackle for my harness and two heavy duty dual action shackles one on a 3 foot tether, one on a 6 foot tether.

Where do you secure the second dual action tether?

If it is connected to the D ring on the harness you lose the quick release capability...so how is the passive tether and shackle stowed safely?

Thanks in advance for recommendations.
