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
You would normally use the halyard for this type of system.
Attach the bottom to your tack ring or shackle. Usually just aft of where your headstay attaches.
Don't remove your headstay.
