    I have back to back pedestal sinks in my house but somebody ran an 1-1/4" horizontal drain from the sinks to the toilet vent and installed a tee where the sinks tie together so you end up running the snake from one drain outlet to the other sink drain outlet and never go down the drain. The last time I had someone on the other side push the end of the snake through the drain outlet with the end of a screw driver until it went down the drain. This time I decided to figure it out so I could do it myself so I stuck the end of a screw driver in one drain and wedged it with the flat tip of another screw driver then tried to run the snake down the drain, the first try didn't work so I pushed the screw driver handle in a little further and wedged it again and the second try worked so I checked to make sure I wasn't coming out the other side and then proceeded to snake the drain.
    Hope this helps someone.
