How far from the back of my shortboard I should install the fcs leash plug ?

Install the leash plug about 2" from the tail of the board on the stringer for the most strength. Make sure your tail is thick enough at least 5/8" thick at that point and it does not interfere with the center fin box (if there is one).

For swallow tails it's best to put the leash plug in the foam of the swallow tail so you don't step on it.
