One more thing you could do; add zip ties to the hoses that connect to your rear SCV. One zip tie on the top hose to top quick coupler, and two zip ties on the bottom hose to bottom quick coupler.
I do this with the 6 hoses for my rear blade. I use colored zip ties to match the colors of the dust caps on my rear SCVs. It's intuitive for me to remember one zip tie = the top/upper quick coupler, and two zip ties = the bottom/lower quick coupler. IIRC my dust caps are green, brown and blue. A different model JD tractor has colored rings for the SCV lever's knobs. I added those to my tractor too.

LMK if you want pictures.

That's intuitive, the way you have the SCV lever operate your grapple. Mine is the same way on my JD 2030. I am also using a rear SCV.
My SCV has detents in both directions. The detents let the grapple open or close without me having to hold the lever. The lever returns to center/neutral when the grapple cylinders reach the end of their travel.
