Neck Loop


A loop of rope used to allow a performer to hang from their neck. Similar to a hand or foot loop, but often including extra padding for comfort. The loop rests at the nape of the neck and the keeper is adjusted to the bridge of the nose, allowing the performer to spin rapidly in the air. A double neck loop can be attached between a catcher and a flyer to perform a spectacular double neck spin during an aerial act.
