I use these as a pair = cheapest $$ anchor I know
Order them from MEC. No duties
http://www.mec.ca/...38-rappel-hanger.jsp

No chain at all. I place them staggered
Place 1 above the other but just slightly to the side, so when the upper ring is on say the left side of the hanger and the bottom is on the right side. The rings line up.
The reason for this is that I find when they are placed horizontally, they twist the rope as it's being pull through.

Some argue that it doesn't divide the load between the 2 hangers. This is very true.
I say, 1 is plenty strong enough to rap off of and you have a 2nd for backup. As we all know shock load is a myth.
Added bonus is as the ring wears you only need to replace 1 not both.

Try it out on one of your routes I'm sure you'll get to like this setup.
