Tool Lanyards

Ok I've just started doing a heap of installs for a local blind company. Most of the work is at heights and I've managed to drop my drill twice, !! Luckily the old girl has survived and more importantly no one was hurt. Does anyone use a lanyard on tools? Just wondering what experiences you may have had and any recommendations. FYI the drill fell out of a holster because I didn't clip it in, but I find I'm now often up ladders holding 14 different items and trying to do it in the safest manner possible!

Tool Lanyards

I saw a tool caddy that slides on to the side of a folding ladder-----look like it would be useful---

It was at my plumbing supply house---sorry I didn't see a price or the name----

I wear a tool belt which carries everything, I just want to know how people have found using lanyards as drop prevention.
