Before you begin to flare the end of the tube, remember to install the threaded fitting, as it can't be done afterward. (Yes, we omitted to install it in these demonstration pictures!) The tubing is slipped through the appropriately sized jaws in the flaring tool, and should extend beyond the surface to a distance determined by the step on the correctly sized adaptor. The flaring tool should then be clamped shut by closing the handles.
