How does this work exactly? If I have two bolts, I create my anchor, leaving the third runner hanging? And what if one bolt is lower than the other, is that going to put disproportionate weight on one end of this?
The equalizer sling is just a length of webbing with a small loop at each end. You can tie it as shown in the photo, which lets you connect to three pieces of gear, or in other arrangements.
Here's a link to the manual: http://www.metoliusclimbing.com/pdf/equalizer-instructions.pdf
If you just want to make an anchor with two bolts (for example, at the top of a sport route), a double-length sling is a cheaper and more versatile way to go. I attached a photo of my usual setup.
