Any Experience using Colligo Emergency Shroud Kit?

Does anyone have experience actually using the Colligo Emergency Shroud Kit?

Is it as easy as they make it sound?

I don't quite understand John Franta, Colligo's director of engineering, description of use:

"First, he says, you'll need to identify "soft spots" on the mast and chainplate where you can lash the ends of the replacement shroud. "On the mast, look for a pinhole where you can put a shackle to lash the shroud to," says Franta.
.... "Splicing the Terminator onto the line is relatively painless, since the 12-strand line is easy to work with. Following the instructions, first-timers can usually make the splice in about 15 or 20 minutes."
"With the thimble spliced in place, it's time to go up the mast and lash one end of the shroud in place. Back on deck, lash the other end to the chainplate and you're good to go."

Soft spots? WTH? How do you securely attach a shackle to a mast using a pinhole?
Wouldn't the lashings chafe on the chainplate without some sort of adapter?
Seems to me like you'd need Colligo's chainplate distributors to lash to.

Any real world comments?
