Hackle guards

I got a set of hackle guards as a present but can't figure out how to use them. As a good dad, I'm obligated to try, so any help would be most welcome. They are three shallow metal cones with a hole in the center and a place to hang a small weight.
I realize they are supposed to keep hackles away while finishing off the head. How do you get the hackling feather through them to tie it off, though? Or am I missing the way they are used?
