the setup ...

as i understand it, you currently have a black rapid strap.  you would connect the strap the the FRT1 at all times.  the FRT1 would be screwed in "permanently" to the kirk clamp.  some people use loctite or some other glue.
the quick release plate on your camera body would be permanently attached.  and the only parts that separate are the 1" clamp and your camera plate ...
it may be a little confusing but here's a picture from a more expensive kirk competitor showing how it is set up:
