forestay turnbuckle conversion - furler

Good Day.

(I did a search and really tried to get thru all the returns to see if this was covered, and I didn't see any...)

I'm installing a new Profurl C290. I'm not sure how to convert (short of calling up a rigger to have it professionally converted) the forestay's turnbuckle. A picture is worth a thousand words, so...

The pin that goes thru the forestay's eye (in the instructions) and the attached locking devices (labeled as #2) are used to attach the furling drum. Hope this makes sense.

Any suggestions?
