SanderO is an unknown quantity at this point
I think he is referring to the reefing point for securing the foot... and gather up the sail on the boom. No?

What I have is a bunch of 1/4" line with a small bowline which I pass through the reef points under the boom and then use the bowline as a loop to cinch up the sail and tie it off with a few hitches. I don't leave them in for sailing but tie off the foot after the reef is set. So they are kept handy.
