Normally there is a line on the pole to help you expand it to the proper length depending on the point of sail and how much pressure you need to push the sail into position. That line should be what goes around the sheave at the outer end. Is there a small cleat or line jam cleat at the other end? At least that's how the expanding whisker pole that I use works.
