    A marvel when they work. PITA when they knot.

    Pulled a lot of those in my younger days - and they are exactly as drf64 describes.

    I sewed the other end shut on about a million (that’s what it seemed like) in a feed mill I once worked at

    Probably invented by some woman who was crocheting a sweater and her cat grabbed the ball of yarn and ran down the hall with it.

    The guy who invented the air dam that mounts atop a semi tractor to increase fuel mileage of trucks used to live across the street from me. He was loaded but you'd never know by looking at his house or his car. Nice guy too.

    Well, if they are getting royalties, I hope they can also be sued!

    When the pull string works, it's one of the most satisfying things ever.

    The inventer is in hiding, because of so many failures with that design.

    I don’t know, but they’re frustrating.

    If I pull one, they knot every time.

    If Mrs. Steerforth pulls one, they work perfectly every time.

    She’s quite amused by that. Me, not so much. :confused:

    I don't believe I ever got one to work. The newer ones with the pull tape that sorta idiot-proofs them are more my style.

    One of the most maddening inventions ever. Just doesn't work like it looks it should. I've opened many bags of dog food and charcoal with my Buck knife; that worked really well.

    it is like the trucker's knot. If'n you can tie one, they are the stuff... if'n you cain't. It is a stupit fastening method.
