Correct. At least one spare is carried in the tsurumaki. They continued to be worn with the armour symbolically long after the role of archers had waned, as too the Gyo-yo.

The above image is a little unusual in that the tachi or katana is often shown pushed through the tsurumaki. Today, kyudo practitioners still use them for carrying spare strings.

The ones we use in our teppotai hang from the usually kidney-shaped Koshi-ate (not evident in that painting) for the tachi.
