    Funny comments about the 'free foot', but it's also important to remember that not all dents will be in a panel where you can get that free foot behind it, so these techniques are useful.

    On the suction puller, some soapy water will often help that seal better, where small microvariances in the surface flatness are letting air leak. Plus it will let you slide the puller a bit and reposition it without releasing it all the way and putting it down somewhere else, for better control of where you're pulling, 'finding' the beginning of a curve where it will leak, etc. Won't solve all dent-related leakage, but it will for some, and anyway it can't hurt to try.

    And as others have said, address the crowns first, especially where it looks like a crease was starting to form. Crowns are where the metal is stretched the most, so reverse those first (or as one commenter said, 'release its stored energy') by heating (expanding) the crown and cooling (shrinking) the lower flat area, multiple times. You don't have to heat the paint to near-blistering, nor freeze it to near-cracking -- small, incremental measures are always best (you don't want to create new problems!). There will be a lot less of the dent remaining to fix after that.

    And take care to not make a new dent in a different spot with the foot method or the bridge puller. Incremental measures are also key with something like this, not 'going as far or further back the other way', which only serves to stretch the metal more and cause waviness that will 'never' come out (unless by a professional).

    And regarding the little round white plastic tool that came with the bridge puller, the concept there is what body men call a 'dolly block', of which a professional might have several different sizes and shapes with different curves and lines, made from chunky blocks of mirror-polished stainless steel, along with various shaped peening hammers. The DIYer can get a lot of this same benefit with a chunk of 2x4 wrapped in a clean soft cloth to protect the finish, then hammer the block to flatten a proud bit, or hammer the panel from the inside against the block on the outside for a low bit.

    But overall, good novice-level demo of some readily available and cost-effective options out there!
