Flip it over: push the prongs in at the base of the weed, and the loop then serves as the fulcrum for prying the weed out. Similar designs are still sold, although the ones I found online have handles. I've seen the phrase "dandelion puller" used with these; best for weeds with tap roots, like dandelions have.
