How do I close my fireplace vents?

There is a really cold draft coming in through our fireplace even though the flue and the glass doors are closed. Some of the draft is coming in around the outside edges of the glass doors (which I assume I can't do anything about) but there is also a lot of cold air coming through the vents above and below the glass doors. There is a little wheel at the bottom of the door that unscrews a bit and looks like it's supposed to move left and right but it feels like a spring inside is keeping it from moving to the left (it's all the way to right at the moment).
I found this
online but cannot seem to locate any security tabs anywhere. My landlord isn't sure how it works.
There's a sticker on it that says Sears and Roebuck model 114 but unfortunately I haven't been able to find any directions online.
