Pfaff Join & Fold edging foot - anyone know how to use it?

I bought this for £13.95 (ouch) because I had a credit note to use & it seemed a good idea. There are 3 YouTube vids, which are pretty rubbish, (out of focus, not showing the crucial bits etc).It has a double slot on the left which is supposed to fold the main fabric, but my seams won't feed through it. On the third YouTube video the demonstrator says to fold & press the fabric first. If I was going to do that I'd use the standard foot! What am I missing here? Or shall I take it back?

I have this but not got around to using it yet. I recall a video for it on the GUR site I think but it may only have been it in action.

Thanks @Morgan. The first 2 are the ones I referred to as out of focus etc. The Husqvarna one is marginally better filmed but theat the one that tells you to press the hem crease first. Thanks for the links to the Singer and Brother ones, hopefully they'll explain it better.
