Use of old fashioned spring winders.

Good Day... new in the forum. Located in Europe, interest in the larger clocks.
Question: Can anybody give me a general run-through on how to use these Spring Winders? The older one I have just purchased and the newer model above; I am working on a price with a seller. But... how are they actually used? I have done springs always by hand in the past but eventually it made me nervous. Springs are quite quick to jump about. Thanks!
PS... photo is "borrowed from seller"... hope he doesn't mind ;-)

Thank you. Perhaps I'd be wise then to scout the entire website out before troubling others with questions already answered. Thank you... looking this evening :)
