I always pop it out to increase tension.  Often just letting 
come up along the rep. lever will increase enough.  I'm not sure 
how you use the "little curved on the end" to increase tension?
For me...increase rep. tension=pop from groove and pull up as 
needed.  Decrease tension=caress the spring to decrease the 
curvature of the wire.
