There's no one position that works for all rats. Some I have to get someone else to hold while I clip. They need to be held tightly and securely if they are prone to squirming. You won't hurt them, they are virtually indestructible. Just do one or two nails and then let them move around a little so they don't get hysterical. Then clip a couple more. If you start when they are young and do it often it's easier. Try different things, it's trial and error. Some can be distracted with food but others get even more worked up because they want to run away and hide to eat the treat. Bottom line, make sure the foot won't move and take your time.
