Default Gator-Bite Help

So I finally got the Gator-Bite in the mail the other day, and I can't figure out how to use it to save my life. My creases are okay without the tool, but horrible with it. It didn't come with any instructions. I looked at the video clip online, but it doesn't go into much detail. Can anyone give me some tips? I am currently sewing on my NBNG templates, pulling off, then putting in the Gator-Bite and attempting to tie off with embroidery thread (I don't have any organza ribbon right now). Thanks in advance for any advice!

ETA: I am attaching a picture so maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. The bows on the left are creased and tied just by hand, the bow on the right was tied using the gator-bite. Can anyone offer any suggestions? I didn't think I would have such a hard time with this $20 clip!
(sorry for the poor-quality pictures)
