(Cl. 150—-3)
My invention pertains to devices for closing
bags, pouches and other receptacles, and is here
such as by the thumb and forc?ngers of a pair
of hands shown in Fig, 2, the extremities of the
bag opening adjacent the points 14 and I6 are
in illustrated in its application to a relatively
small bag suitable as a container for a perfume
5 bottle.
The principal object of my invention is to pro
vide simple and novel means for gathering and
holding together the edges of the open end of a
pulled progressively through the ring ll (Fig. 2),.
This action gathers the other portions compris- 5
ing the opening of the bag I!) to such an extent
that they too readily follow the said extremities
through the ring H. After the ring H has
moved downwardly a short distance the portions
of the bag above. the ring U will be expanded 10
Another object is to provide simple and e?i
, cient means for drawing the open end of a bag
or spread'by continued pulling so as to retain
through a member which will retain it in a
gathered or closed position.
An additional object to which my invention is
.15 directed is the provision of means for keeping
said ring.
Fig. 3 shows the bag 10 in its completely closed
position. It will be appreciated that the size of
the ring II is determined by the amount of the 15

the bag with which it is to be used.
Certain additional objects, together with the
many advantages of my novel construction, will

The following is a description of a convenient
manner of operating my device:
a. Gather the cords I2 and I3 below the ring 20
l I, take one between the thumb and index ?nger
of each hand, and pull.
1). Slide thumbs and index ?ngers closer to
ring II, and pull until the bag is closed.
By using a pair of cords or loop members, I 25
