Note: This is the 8th duplicate (9th version) of my question (re. new
floss holder), and it is reposted because I have  made changes in the
web-page .Only answer 'yes' to
first question is satisfactory.
The web-page is mostly pictures about how to use. This floss holder is
good for about 250 all-teeth use.
1.Are you flossing frequently using only floss,2 hands and nothing
2.Is it clear from this web-page how to use this product, and how many
minutes have you (the researcher) spent on it? 
3. The Researcher is asked to answer with at least one word the 
question of whether this product could be of any use for him/her.

In response to your query:

1) In Japan where I am, there are actually two other products used for
cleaning between teeth. One is like a bottle cleaner, which you
squeeze between your teeth. The other is similar to your invention,
only with a piece of floss preappended to disposable sticks, and is
called a "floss toothpick".  Here are illustrations of what I'm
talking about:

Neither of these seem to very adept at flossing my back teeth, which
is where most of the food that sticks in my teeth end up.  So when I
floss regularly, it is generally using floss and two hands, unless
normal floss isn't available, in which case I grudgingly use one of
the other options.

2. To be honest, from looking at your diagram, it would appear to take
longer to prepare the floss using your product that it would take to
simply floss my teeth the normal way. That may or may not be the case,
but your diagram gives me the impression that this a complex,
time-consuming process.

3. For reaching my back teeth, I notice that it is very difficult to
use the "floss toothpick" to get back there. For times when I'm not so
worried about the back teeth, I think I'd prefer the convenience of
the floss toothpick's pre-attached floss than trying to roll it
myself. Perhaps your product would appeal to the more thrifty
customer, since buying floss is much cheaper than the pre-attached
floss toothpick, but as for me, I would the convenience of the floss
toothpick to your "attach it yourself" product.
