I’ve never tried the paper clip or raft. It seams like a great idea. I have become very comfortable just using my thumb and index finger to message the bag a little right in front of the snorkle to create a small wrinkle in the bag and like magic it extracts all the air 90percent of the time. 10 percent I may need to message the air from the back of the bag to the front. This is easy. Just force the air forward and if it won’t go stop the vac and reposition and vac again. I can bag and vac and seal ten steaks in about four minutes while drinking an icy cold schooner and talking with friend and family. The more I use the machine the easier it is. Lastly when I do the big bags some times I need two hands to message the wrinkle ne’er the snorkel and some times Instead of sealing both corners to create a v for the snorkel I seal one corner further over to the other side and then snork the other side and seal. This saves me on a third seal and allows my hand to message the snorkel while the other hand messages air out.. If I see blood I stop, remove the blood with a paper napkin and start again. This is easier to do if you leave at least a six inch opening for your second vac on the other corner.
