Oil pump screen install tool; howzit work?

I've purchased from 4wdhardware a high volume oil pump. It comes with a pickup tube (screen)uninstalled. So I bought the pickup screen installation tool from them too. No instructions, and it isn't clear to me how it works. Do I just put the halves of the tool around the tube and whack it on with a hammer?

Put the pickup tube in the freezer for an hour or so and heat the area of the pump that the tube goes in with a propane torch. They should slide together without much effort.
