The tool compresses the seal before you insert the injector it so it doesn't catch/roll/bend when you push the injector in. You compress with tool, quickly install, and then the seal expands again within a few minutes to seal fully. That is the concept anyway.

I had an injector replaced with a used-good one at Helix, and they didn't replace the seal. Not sure if they did the compression routine either. I had asked them to.
