When I have used a downhaul on a jib, I have used small rings or shackles attached at every other or every third hank. These act as fair leads. I typically tied the downhaul to the halyard with a stopper knot at the first ring. I have always had good results out of that. That said, as a word of warning, years ago, I gave that advice to someone on this board and he said that it did not help him at all.
