The guide i was reading: http://www.stringforum.net/stringingguide.php
I went back to your second site again and starting reading to find out where you got that he was tensioning knots with the tensioner. I got down to the part where he said, "Usually the main strings are pulled one row at a time. For better convenience, I always pull two mains at once..." Enough said I didn't bother reading any more.

I think what he may have said is that he pulls the string through the grommet with the tensioner like 'drakulie' did with the cam action pliers but I had lost all confidence in that link when I got the the double pulling.
