I couldn't figure how they worked because I thought they just inserted like regular spacers. Video cleared that up. The tiles were a decent size, 12 X 18 ish.

ridgid has a similar system also, that uses a screw down cap. may be easier to keep the tile where you want instead of shoving the wedge into that slot.

The screw down caps often slide the tile as you twist them down, the wedge anchor ones don't.

I have that Hitachi rebar bender/cutter, it's a very sweet tool. A little spendy at $2800, but if you do a lot of rebar work it's well worth it. Along with that is the Max rebar tier, another expensive tool (around $3k) that makes a miserable job into an easy one.
After a week of bending steel and tying by hand a few thousand bucks worth of tools seems like bargain.
