Pocket Hole Failure

I have always heard pocket holes are amazing.  I cannot seem to figure it out.  Everytime I try making something, the joints never pull snug and seem very loose.Anyone have any suggestions or experience this?  I am about 10 minutes shy of selling my K4 on ebay!  Are there any tricks?  I know everyone will swear by the kreg screws, but are there anything out there better?  See More
