Actually I've used em a bunch, they are a bit of a pain, and if something goes wrong mid-run, you're kinda fucked (I've had to 1-foot it down from near the top of the lift before, but it was a shattered ratchet so tools would have been useless anyway).
Carried a lock last year and it really annoyed me, thinking the same of a tool, I'll have to check that zip one out. I remember BA talking about the one on the belt, seems like a good idear too.
