Out of interest, do you reckon you even need a spreader for foiling? It would be really easy to set up a rope slider if there was no spreader at all, just tie the rope to one end and have a small carabiner on the other.

No hook or corners to dent your board. Works great for foiling and more.

Yes. It stops the sides of the harness from crushing your kidneys when the kite pulls.
