Anyone know how to set up this roller furler

I found these in my boat. If the picture don't show up, one item is a cylinder with coiled rope and the other is the top connector. Both swivel about their top and bottoms. I'm now sure its a roller furler system. The name "Sapphire" is stenciled on the roller. My boat is a Chrysler 22. Both my jib and genoa have wire in their luffs. I believe its a free flying system as there was no type of extrusion with the unit.I'm unsure if I should find a way to connect the system using my jib/genoa haul up, or connect it directly to where my forestay is connected. Apparently I can't post a picture yet.

Thanks... Steve
