    They are not for tying hooks mate. They are for tying loops of a consistent size. Tie a double overhand loop and put the longer prong through the loop and the shorter one through the 'O' created but the knot, moisten and pull tight. Slip the now smaller 'O' off the smaller prong and tighten with the loop still on the monger one.

    There are 2 sets of prongs, for making different sized loops.

    Hope this helps

        I have a hooklength box and know where to stretch my line too before tying a loop although this came through trial and error. What you can do though, is get yourself a piece of old wood, longer than you want your hooklengths, bang two nails the desired length apart so they'll fit in your box. Bnag the nails right through then you can tie your hook, now take the line up and around the second nail, double your line back over the nail towards your hook. Pinch the loop you've now formed over the nail and tie your loop knot while keeping the doubled line in the same place. Its much easier to do than these instructions let on!

              cookie as steveL says is bang on, there is no need to go and spend money on a PRO hooktyer
              if you want hooklengths say 30cm long, bang a panel pin into a piece if wood, and leave 10mm sticking out, now measure 30cm away from that pin and bang another pin in, and leave 10mm out again, tie your hook on to your line, and hook the hook on to one of the pins, now take the line and wrap it round the second pin, and remove holding the doubled line, this is where you make your loop, and bingo you have a hooklength that is 30cm, if you want them longer just put in another pin to your required length.
              cheers

                  What I do is hook the hook on the pin, pull the line around the pit it will be looped over back on it self. This will form a slight 'kink' in the line. This is where the end of the loop needs to be. Should be spot on if using a seymo loop tyer.
