IT is not an alignment device, but there are things aligned when it's used. Four things to be exact. And while they don't need to be perfectly aligned like say, a roll of quarters, they need to be reasonably close to being on top of each other.

Close enough for something to pass through.....

You're coming dangerously close to making my head explode.

Well I could have said something like, This is simple.....
Sure, simple to me.

I'm going to hold off of giving any "real" clues and see if any night time users have a good guess. I'll get y'all in the ballpark shortly.
Awww heck, this will either get you in the ballpark or throw you totally off.

People who use this device are generally meticulous, like I said before trusted and........... know quite a bit about sewing

Does it have anything to do with making or packing parachutes?

Shoot. Did I give too much of a hint?
No, it doesn't have anything to do with making parachutes.

Good one, Alans.
I think that one may have been guessed already.
