You are using too much pressure on the thumbscrew. Unscrew the thumbscrew until it is completely loose. Tighten gently (clockwise) until the paper will feed slowly without stretching. Gently adjust as the paper roll gets smaller.
Orient the paper so that it feeds from the bottom of the Mini Packing Station. Angle the roll downward towards the right side under the tension bar and it will then the opposite side will easily drop down into the yoke.
Place it with your corrugated boxes for recycling.
The table may be dusty or it is not a smooth surface. If the table is dusty clean the dust from the table and the suction cups.
The easiest solution is securing it with a clamp to the back of the table.
