I don't really get how this works, could someone please explain it to me?
Does this allow me to use a thread-less stem on my threaded forks?

Yes, this is for using a threadless stem on your threaded forks. Works a charm - on both 1" and 1 1/8" steerers

This adapter works in a very similar way to a standard quill stem. However, instead of the handlebar clamp there is a blank shaft. This shaft is a 1.1/8th size and therefore allows a standard 1.1/8th stem to be attached. The adapter itself is tightened into the steerer tube via a 6mm Hex key in the top of the adapter. The same process as is used with a standard quill stem.
