Pictures?

The nut is the piece of plastic/bone/ceramic at the "top" of the fretboard before the tailpiece, I think that you're talking about the bridge... I think

Lol my cyclone has those tuners anyways they are a total pain in the ass

1. Stretch the strings (This is SO IMPORTANT)
2. Cut the string about 5 inches longer than the tuning peg
3. Insert the end of the string inside of the "butterfly"
4. Wrap the string around the tuning head as many times as possible
5a. Keep the strings tight otherwise they will spring off and cut your f*cking hand.
5. Turn the tuning pegs, tune, and tune, and tune again

*Edit*
Even though these tuners suck when you have to change strings the tuning stability is so much better.

^^ What he said, but when I stick the string straight down into the hole (through the top), I bend it down to fit in that groove, then start turning the peg. I don't know why it would spring off though.

*edit - Good Deal. They are a pain, but you will have no excess string hanging off, making it look cleaner. They're suppose to be "vintage" style. My Tele Reissue has em'

I almost always cut them too short (~1 inch) because the gears for my low E string won't mesh properly if I go any longer due to the amount of torque involved with .10 strings. When strung this way theres no friction or tension at the peg end causing the strings to "jump" out of place which usually ends in some blood .

Those tuners actually rock because they hide the string ends. You can never accidentally stab yourself on them, and they look cleaner.
