1. An anchor assembly intended for locking engagement with an exposed building support frame member, the assembly comprising:
a c-shaped anchor having an opening adapted to receive a frame member and a set of engagement teeth adapted to lockingly engage a surface of the frame member whereby the anchor when in an anchored position is adapted to support a subject;
a clevis attached at one end to the anchor, the anchor and clevis being attached so as to permit articulation of the anchor relative to the clevis, whereby with the clevis being positioned adjacent the frame member the anchor articulates to position the opening to receive the frame member and to engage the teeth with the surface of the frame member to achieve locking engagement of the anchor with the frame member; and
a spring attached at one end to the anchor and at the opposite end to the clevis to hold the anchor in a first position and to allow with application of force the anchor to articulate to a second position during deployment of the assembly.
