Perplexed by Salomon bladder attachment

Hi all. I just received a Salomon SKIN PRO 10L, which looks to be a great bit of kit. But I am puzzled by the bladder attachment mechanism. On my model there is a blue ribbon with a grey, eye-shaped sliding clip. I presume the ribbon is intended to go through the sliding top of the bladder, with the clip stopping the bladder sliding off the ribbon (and so carrying the weight).

Is the idea to leave the clip on the ribbon and push both through the sliding top? Or take the clip off, slide through the ribbon, and then thread the clip through the ribbon? Both options seem quite fiddly, and likely to be highly annoying when tired and in a hurry at a checkpoint. Am I missing something?

Thanks very much
