I also thought mine was for ankle fitment at first, but found the strap was
actually too short for that, only allowing the tip of the velcro to connect.
It also sits all wrong.
It is actually designed to fit on your harness webbing with or without the
thick(5mm) removable neoprene pad, the pad being to protect you from the
plastic webbing attachments in the event of a wipe-out. Unless yours is an
original as suggested by Steve T.
I have fitted (looped) a plastic ball to the retractable webbing about 1m
from the end to stop it retracting by that amount, this is to stop the board
being pulled too close while getting your feet in the straps, but I am still
Hope this helps

Subject: [ksurf] ReelLeash attachment?
I've just received my ReelLeash. From what I can see from the NSI
homepage, the attachment is supposed to be on the harness' 2"webbing
strap. However it seems like the ReelLeash is made for attachment on
the ancle, as the size of the webbing and the neoprene etc. fits
exactly to that. But attaching this relatively big thing to the ancle
doesn't seem ideal to me. Howcome they made the attachment straps
so 'bulky' if it is made for harness attachment?
I ride a LWD 169 and think of attaching the line to one of the fin
screws. Would a fin hold the drag from the screw, when really wiped
