The best attachment is that flat diagonal one that's pointed on the end (sorry if my description sucks ). I briefly apply the flat part, with the pointed end in the center of the v-cut, on 1 side and then exactly the same way on the other. Works perfectly!

2)wood burner to heat seal. You don't have to keep it on there for very long as it melts the ends and doesn't take long to do that.

I agree with them, this is the best way.
