Perhaps the most difficult part of the vaccum sealing is the propensity for the bag material to “clump” up in the snorkle, and block the vaccum process.
I believe Thea is going to present an “accessory” clip to insert in the snorkle to hold the bag open.
What you might try is two toothpicks inserted inside the snorkle on each side. Then slip the bag over the snorkle and move the toothpics close or on the side of the meat.
See if that helps temporariy The basswood toothpicks will remain inside the bag with the meat and presents no problem for contamination. Use clean toothpics of course.
The use of stainless steel clips is being considered, or ??. Thea can answer this better.
RRP has a “raft” of tubing that has success also.
