Yes, that metal thing that is not really a "ring" but more oblong. So, you do have the strap thru there??! i just tried it and yup, the strap does fit! WTH, when i first got the harness i tried pulling the strap thru and found it didn't fit so i always wondered whey they even had that ring there but now i feel better b/c this seems to make the strap more secure. Thanks Tracey!

I think i deserve a big "No Duh" right now concerning this harness...
Henny, you are cracking me up… Lol When I got the harnesses for my dogs it was already strapped thru there and thank goodness because I would have had NO idea how to assemble it. You should look into that Y strap, that looks very secure!!!
