The Weston is a good vacuum sealer and maybe “too good” since it creates very strong vacuum and sucks down the lid very hard thereby cuttng off the VacMouse ability to pass the air out of the bag. What may be even more useful then placing the VacMouse at the edge of the bag is to rough up the opening of the bag a little. Since you did not place a large piece of meat in the bag, the bag was probably lying very flat on the sealing bar and vacuum channel gasket and this is not favorable for the VacMouse.
It is counterintuitive but some small wrinkles in the bag actually help with VacMouse application.
