Default Grooming Table Help

I know this may sound like a RIDICULOUS question, but I just got a grooming table for Gucci and....well, I have NO idea how to use the "rope" hanging down. I am trying to find some pictures and it appears to be tied around the neck, but that scares me. So I put her body into it and that did NOTHING. She might as well just be on the counter. There is a little round thing at the bottom that the rope is looped through, but I don't even know how to use that to tighten it up. Can someone give me so advice on this?

What i do is put one of the front legs through instead of having it just go around the neck and then switch legs when i need to. HTH

I'm guessing you're supposed to push the little round thing up.... Then put her in it like Debbie suggested, then push the little round thing down a bit?

LOL Sorry I can't help much... I want a grooming table.....

The rope thingy, looks like a noose, goes around their neck. There is a sliding ring to be used to tighten or loosen it. Experiment on your hand to see how it works. I just have the arm, not the whole table. I use it on their necks, as do groomers.

Well, I tried it around her neck and it didn't help. She was still able to turn and move all over the place. So, it doesn't really help with giving me my arm back!

Well, Spookie turns around too if SHE is done with where I am. But she can't jump off, she did that once. I just put her back and keep going. They understand, eventually

I just loosely drape it over her neck. Might take a bit but do stand in one place with the noose. I put table against a wall for now. Penny still getting used to surface of table. Helps if they been to a groomer before. He's young so will take time. I brush mine on it too now.

Put it around her neck and like Deb, (MySugarBears)said, also put one front leg through the loop. This way there is no strain on her neck.

Lynda, deb,
I missed what Deb said. I don't understand. How do you do the noose?

I attach the noose to a step in harness, because I am paranoid.
A groomer showed me that idea.
