Kill Switches

I know there have been previous post on the importance of attaching the kill switch lanyard to your body. How about a discussion on reasons and how to eliminate those reasons not to wear them. I will start off with my reasons not to wear it and what I did to eliminate those reasons.
I had never used a kill switch for many years but after purchasing a low side cat boat I saw for the first time the importance, so I started hooking it up. I started hooking it to the D ring on my life vest, the results were wraping the lanyard up around the steering when I made tight turns. I tried my wrist, same results only worst. On top of that I would forget about it from time to time. One big pain in the butt.
I solved both of these problems by purchasing a dog collar with the quick snap in buckle, attaching the lanyard to the collar and buckling it on my leg just above my knee. The lanyard is now low enough to stay out of the steering wheel and when I take it off it is hung on the throttle/shift leaver to remind me to put it on the next time I start the engine.
Does anyone see a problem with this or have other ideas to help people eliminate reasons not to wear their kill switches.

If it works that's great. Not sure of the name or website, but there is new product on the market that is a remote kill switch, no more having to attached the lanyard to any body part. When u get a set distance away from the remote it kills the motor. Seems like a good products.
