The profile and design of the Clip-N-Seal device are very similar to
the sealing clips provided by Mitsubishi Gas Chemical for their
Escal products. I distribute and use the Mitsubishi clips.

My observations and suggestions after using the Mitsubishi clips
over more than a decade (abetted by stories from clients) are:

    Ensure that the bag is clean where it is to be clipped
    Ensure that the area to be clipped is completely wrinkle free
    Use a single clip
    Do not fold the bag under the seal (anyhow)
    If you are doing anoxia, add a little extra Ageless

Given you take care, the Clip-N-Seal should work for temporary
anoxic packaging, most of the time. Note that oxygen will migrate
through a pressure clipped seal more quickly than through a heat
seal. The best method is still to use a wide heat seal if you can
(and the heat seal costs nothing).
