A friend of mine uses hog rings to seal his bags before dipping in the water. How do others do it?
I use the same method, I too am looking for options that are easier to use than manually putting on the hog rings. I am thinking about this item since it is such a quick dip in the water anyway I do not think this would melt.
I will be watching with interest what others use.
Zip ties work. There is a ring tool here about half way down the page that is automatic and works well. The downside is it's $45. I wonder if a regular T50 staple gun would work.
I used the item you are showing there when I worked in a butcher shop some years ago. It was used to seal the tubes of hamburger. Not sure if it would make a watertight seal or not. It is just thin tape, and if it was not placed end up it might leak out.
Well that's what I was thinking, I hold up the opening with the hog ring and dip in the boiling water that way and it shrinks so fast I just wonder if it is worth trying, I have two left hands trying to put the hog rings on by myself.
Usually twist the top and double over and then use a 4" nylon cable tie. Have not experienced any leakage.
is there a website that you buy your bags from? I have been searching and am getting very frustrated... thanks
Make sure you place your order as soon as possible, it takes a while to get the sizes restocked when they run out. Really nice customer service and I am happy with the product. A tad expensive on the shipping so order in bulk.
thank you for the help
