I can see the advantage of clipping on low to a stanchion, where the leverage is low or nil compared to tying off on the top lifeline. I do like the 'biner idea; that's almost worth a look to see if it'll work. (Although metal to metal doesn't seem such a great idea.) It hardly seemed worth a second thought. Just walk the fender to where it needs to go; toss it over; spin, spin, tuck, and tug it tight; done. I dunno. Maybe if I tripped and fell over a box full of 'biners someday.
