How to attach Da Kine leash?!

Hey, I thought I may as well order a leash to chuck in my rucksack in case I ever got told to have one.

Got the one below. As you can see it has a loop on the left hand side, which I can easily thread through anything.. But there is nothing to attach it to on the right hand side? How do I use it and what do I connect each end to?!

Cheers

Lace your laces through the right portion of it or if your lazy get a key loop.

Ah.. So I can lace that through now and leave that half connected permamently, then keep the left half in my rucksack and simply get it out and loop it through my binding then click into place if I need it?

Front or back foot best?

Cheers!

Ah, front - obviously! This is the most ridiculous purchase. If both my aluminium/plastic bindings break, then I've got a piece of fabric instead?!

why did you get a leash?...do you realize the chances of coming out of one of your bindings much less both at the same time?

Heh yeah, it's a silly purchase. I've just splashing on lots of gear and heard a few people mention they've been told to have a leash to on certain mountains, so figured 6.99 didn't hurt!

I just like how you heard about it, you looked at it, had no idea what to do with it, bought it anyway, looked at it again, problem solving gave you nothing, and you turned to us. giggle

FYI Boots and bindings are Right/Left specific.

As in because I'm goofy I push with my left foot (so if I actually wanted to use a leash I would use it on my right foot), and if I was regular I would push with my right foot (so you would want the leash on the left).

Seriously though, unless your hill is a nazi about wearing a leash, they are the dumbest thing ever unless you have never snowboarded before.

Yup. They completely defy logic, as I ascertained before ordering! For the sake of 6.99 when I've recently ordered perhaps 1,000 of new gear, it seems no drama to stick it in my bag so I know I'm covered in case someone asks!
