On the bottom center of the red disc. I believe my (now broken) vinator had it already in place.

I had a heck of a time with mine, too. The design of those things leaves a lot to be desired.

Glad to hear I was not the only one confused. I had some red plastic tube thing left I still don't know what to do with.

The red plastic tube thing is to mount it on top of your bottle tree. You just squirt and hang.

I don't know why they don't put a simple diagram in there.

I had terrible luck with that. I used it once and the little balls inside the base and the injector both rusted terribly. I was worried about the rust getting into the bottles so no I have a really nice 15$ plastic bowl.
