Question Clueless

Most of my sailing experience is with catboats 'thout roller reefing, headsails, shrouds, and such-like things. Last summer I bought a Bristol 29.9 with a Hood headsail roll-reefer/furler. There's a wire-cable pennant 2-3 feet long that, last season, was shackeled either between the furler's top-swivel and the head of the genoa or between the tack and the furler drum -- I forget which. Where would it make the most sense to put it: top or bottom? (For starters, I put it on top, and the tack clears the pulpit.)
