when i was out the other day,
another bloke that was there showed me how the tool worked
he held the squid in a towel to get a good grip
in behind the eyes, a quick twist, and the squid instantly went white and was dead

I find a sharp jab with the side of your hand just behind the eyes kills them and instantly turn white.

The act of killing in and of itself is inhumane, so really the question is "What methods of killing a squid best preserve it for dead bait or consumption?".

A Karate chop just behind the eyes will pretty much kill them instanly, aim where the pointy part of tube and back of the eyes. work every time for me

Hi Glen
I think your 'tool' destroys the squid's brain. If you insert 4-5cm then twist, I reckon you'd be in the right spot to wreck the brain, according to this pic I found.

I recently saw a chap on tele, he separated with his fingers where the back of the head (upper part) meets the body. The connective tissue is so small there

it severs easily with a pinch from index finger and thumb.  The squid turned white nearly instantly. Simple enough no tools required.
