    Not too many guys here with chamber sealers, and unfortunately those bags won't work in a regular vacuum sealer, because they have no channeling in them.
    Hope you sell them!

    This might sound dumb, but as a last resort you could seal a 45° line on each corner at the open end of the bag.
    Then trim the excess off. Then your open end between the 45° lines can be small enough to fit in your machine.

    I told you it sounds dumb, but it would work, unless yours won't work without the channeling.

    Well Bear, if that's dumb, that makes 2 of us! I tried that exact fix right before I saw your post and it worked! Sealed in some water as a test and it's holding nice and tight.
    All is not lost!

    Thanks for your input!
