This tool looks interesting at first, but then I questioned the extra thickness of the tool extension bit and the actual thickness of the pouch, plus the flat bands passed through the pouch hole and folded over the pouch: upon withdrawing the tool extension bit, the final knot cannot be as tight as a knot made without this tool using other more classic jigs - or am I missing something?

Either way, I ended up making my own flat band jig that allows accurate band end & pouch placement and tying knots for perfectly symmetrical bands with the required OTT or TTF orientation, using a basic vise-based mechanism to generate band end tension prior to tying a knot.

A detailed tutorial is available in the templates section of the forum, if ever.

This is how it works:
