I have. It can be useful if you are a crappie fisherman and need to hold on a brushpile but still move around the pile. I'm talking about using two anchors of course.

I have them on both sides. Makes it easier to position in the wind when I'm trying to target a particular piece of cover or structure, or blanket a high probability area without drifting off of it.

I have just one anchor trolley and I need to take a photo of it and post it since it is a 2 Harken pulley system mounted to stock kayak tracks (Slayer Propel 10) forward and back, no holes drilled, and a Zig Zag cleat near my hand to secure its position.

But, for everyone who has two, let me ask a question: Since a single anchor out can cause a kayak to swing, certainly one with the anchor pulling off a bit from the absolute bow or stern line positioning, once the vessel swings into the preferred spot, couldn't the second anchor be dropped straight over the opposite side and simply fastened to a second Zig Zac cleat? And, couldn't it likely be a rather small anchor since it isn't doing much work?

Curious.

That's exactly what I use mine for while tight line fishing for whisker fish. I drop the second anchor as the bow swings around. The anchor trollies allows your anchor points yo be very close to the ends of your yak which works best IMO.

Loc: On my kayak
Both sides are a must for me. Wind push kayaks so they are perpendicular to it. If I'm working a bank, depending on wind direction I need it on both sides for my drift sock so I can face the right direction. If I'm drifting a flat and the sun is in my eyes I can switch sides to change the way I face. If I need to stake out and cast at something from a certain direction I'll need them on both sides for that too. One side I have it full length of the yak and the other is half yak. I pretty much never have it anchored from the front because I don't want a fish to tangle with my anchor line when reeling it in.

I only fly fish from my kayak and have an anchor trolly on the right side and an anchor dropping from the bow controlled on my left side. I only use it for holding position if the wind is is swinging the kayak or if I want to face into the wind.
