Pull Ties: Solution for Sealing Plastic Bags

Updated on February 19, 2011

Are you looking for an easy way to help keep food items stored in plastic bags fresh for as long as possible?

If you’ve ever been disappointed to discover that the potato chips or loaf of bread that you opened just a few days ago has gotten stale – in spite of being sealed with a chip clip or twist tie– you certainly understand just how important it is to find a better solution.

If you’ve experienced this problem – or other similar food freshness challenges – you’ll be happy to discover Pull Ties.

What Are Pull Ties?

Pull ties are a unique kitchen accessory designed to make easy work of keeping plastic bags tightly sealed. Pull Ties are easy to use and provide a convenient way to keep food stored in plastic bags protected and fresh. Rather than clamping over the end of a bag or requiring the time consuming twisting required by other bag sealing solutions, Pull Ties offer a much more effective and convenient way to seal bags.

How Do Pull Ties Work?

Pull Ties are very easy to use. Each Pull Tie is an elongated loop that is 4-3/4 inches long with a stopper. The stopper slides from one end to the other.

When you are ready to seal a bag, all you need to do is place the top of the bag into the loop, press the stopper’s release button and slide it up. When let go of the release button, the stopper will remain in place, keeping the bag sealed, until you are ready to open it again.

When a Pull Tie is crimped shut, a seal will be formed. This is how Pull Ties keep out air so that food can stay fresher, longer.

Pull ties are designed to be reusable. Rather than throwing away a Pull Tie once the container of food it was being used to seal is empty, simply keep it until the next time that you open a bag. You can use the same Pull Tie again and again.

Uses for Pull Ties in the Kitchen

You can use pull ties on many types of plastic bags, including those that hold:

  • Bread
  • Candy
  • Cereal
  • Chips
  • Cooking
  • Crackers
  • Dried beans
  • Frozen food
  • Pancake mix
  • Potatoes
  • Prepared salad mixes
  • Many others

Other Uses for Pull Ties

While Pull Ties are ideal for use with food products, they also have many other household uses. For example, they can be used to seal plastic bags used to hold toys like marbles, crayons dominoes and game pieces. You can also use Pull ties to seal bags of laundry detergent, sacks of fertilizer and potting soil, and much more.

    Cereal is one of my pet peeves. They can make plastic sandwich and storage bags that you throw away cheap enough but they can't make the bag inside a box of cereal seal closed to keep the cereal fresh. Pull ties sound like just the ticket. Great write-up.
