Re: NANFA-- Metal Bands for Closing Plastic Bags

The hog ring pliers may be what I need. Has anyone ever used these?
Do the rings only close to a certain point or can they be closed down
as tightly as needed to cinch up small bags? In other words, do the
ends of the rings meet and stop there, or do they slide past each
other so they can close down tighter around the bag top? If there is
a limit to the minimum diameter of the ring, what is it? Thanks!
