GAM SSB Backstay Antenna

We just purchased the SSB backstay antenna from GAM for our iCon 802. Our backstay on our 46 foot sloop is split and runs about 15' from the deck to the fitting that joins the port and starboard lower back stays to the single upper backstay. The GAM is about 30' long. Has anyone attached the GAM to a similar split backstay configuration (upside Y shape) and if so how did you handle attaching the antenna to the fitting that joins the upper and lower backstays. All thoughts appreciated.
