If you run the tack to the anchor pin (or in that area), be careful that the tack line doesn't foul the bi-color running light when you jibe. That happened to us and the light was ripped off the pulpit. Fortunately, it was still hanging by the wires.
I've used the ATN tacker and it works well. I also had a stainless ring fabricated that I lash to the pulpit as a fairlead, and that works well too. The pulpit seems to be strong enough to handle the strain.
