With that tool you toss the seed out onto the ground where you want it and then just start rolling over it until the seed disappears in the dirt...
But I wouldn't work the soil deeper(with a detcher)... there only needs to be loosened soil enough to engulf the seed when it rains, so just MIXING the seed into the top inch of soil, then,,,
SOAK it down thoroughly in order to recreate the 'hard pack surface' that will hopefully prevent more erosion...

After that water ONLY when the grassroots are completely dried out and use only a couple pounds of N during the growing season... if you see that it is progressing,,, there will be a temptation to really sock the N to it, but DON'T do it...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
