where does the wrap stop go, how high?

Have a profurl 290 on my 27 Mirage, unit works great. first year after stepping the mast discovered the fore stay had unraveled some. replaced the forestay and re-installed the furler. My problem is i did not mark where the wrap stop went on the fore stay. put it where i thought it should go but wondered about it all last year, although did not have issues. have stepped the mast again for the winter and am wondering, do i put it as high as it will go against the roller block? does it go at the top of the extrusion parts? i know its supposed to stop the halyard from wrapping around the fore stay and unwrapping it. BUT where should it go to get the best protection?

On top of the extrusion.
