Referring to the picture of the pole, you will note that the excess cable is stored inside tubing and the noose is partially open.
To Open noose: a slight pull on release knob.
To Close noose: pull on end of cable. (A locking device assembled inside the pole automatically locks cable in position and noose will not open until released by a pull on Release knob.)
To Snare Animal:
Slip noose over animal’s head or other part of body and tighten sufficiently to restrain animal by a pull on the end of cable
