    i believe thats meant to replace the loop made on the tsuru before knotting it against the tsukagawa. i've seen most japanese shinai with this piece of leather on this part umm....

        Leather Piece

        Halifax Kendo has pictures on attaching the leather piece, but the leather piece has a slit through the middle instead of holes.

        This general manual has diagrams on how to tie the leather piece you described.

        Hope this helps.

              Instead of passing the string through the loop you pass it through the thingamadoodle.
