It's hard to tell for sure from the pic, but it looks like this to me:

1) Unscrew the base of the plug. Slide that part onto the cable wire with the screw toward the exposed wires.
2) Loosen the screw in the gold plated connector. Slide your cable into that, and then tighten the screw to hold the wire in place.
3) Slide the base of the plug up to the gold plated connector and screw it on.

Looks like that should be all you need to do, but again, it's hard to tell from the pics.

Just one more upgrade and things will be perfect.

Does not show in the video but my guess is that it helps to clamp down on the cable sleeve for thick cables.

Yep, that's what it's for, and if it can grip the insulation effectively, it'll help to prevent any unneeded twisting of the conductors that might otherwise occur during manipulation. Or so is my theory....
