gapping plugs

i got some new plugs and have wires on the way from underdog performance, and picked one of those coin shaped gap readers. how do i increase the gaps with it, or do i need another tool to do that? i'm rather new at the spark plug thing.

just use the gaper to bend it till you get to the gap you need simple as that if you gap it to far juts push it against something hard to bend it back down but be easy with it
