You just bend a loop in the end of the wire. A very narrow loop, and the core gets wedged in there. I almost always tape the core/cover to the fid, as I don't have the kit w/ the hook in it.

The hook kit, should be able to just stuff the core into the fid, and pull back. That should set the hook into the core......... in theory.
