You shouldn’t use it for spacing out your pattern aircraft. That is considered overcontrolling. Pattern aircraft are responsible for own spacing. If planes get too close you can always send the higher aircraft around. But it is a useful tool when it’s busy to create space for departures. It isn’t used much but I’ve given you two examples where I have used it. You might want to I use it if you have a slow aircraft like a xcub to expedite the circuit or if you have two runways close together and you don’t want to end up with aircraft that’s landing side by side. It wouldn’t be there if you weren’t supposed to use it but most of the time you shouldn’t have to. It’s rare I use it, but sometimes it’s worth it.
