How does this work, and exactly what does it do, beyond the description in the title? How do you use it?

For weatherstrip that has the embedded wire loop clips.
The loop is inserted over the J-tool pointed awl shape and forced up to the larger diameter area, then the pliers crimp the wire below to re-shape the loop so it fits tighter into the receptacle in the body.

I've used the long probe "awl shape" of a test light probe and long nose pliers to accomplish the same procedure.
