What's the trick to using those? Do you use extra-long tails on the safety wire so you can thread them through the holes in the tool? Somebody make a YouTube video, please!

Yes. Fish the safety wire thru with long needle nose, bring it out, snake both ends thru the driver, grab both ends of wire and push the driver down and twist it up. Biggest challenge is cutting it off in a tight space.
The driver works well in tight spaces where normal safety wire pliers don't have room to spin around like FWF areas.
