The Wrist Mount is a sidestyle mount, that is a bit like a Double or Nothing, except that it goes around the throw hand wrist - hance the name - and lands on the middle string. Being an interesting trick on its own, it also serves as the starting point for many tricks such as Superman and Spirit Bomb.

Step 6: ...hang down. It now looks like it's going to be an interesting task to disentangle the mess. The string goes down from throw hand finger, through a string loop extending up from the yo-yo. Then it goes around the throw hand wrist, down, around the axle, up around the aforementioned string segment, and down to the axle.

You can now pull out the free hand finger. In the picture, it was left in the string to depict the string configuration.
