The present invention relates to an imarrangement, the bag can be filled through proved cement bag and it has more particuthe open end. On the last named end we lar reference to a novel closure therefor, find apair of complemental flexible metallic As is well known, it is the present practice tracks which cooperate in forming a sepato tie one end of the bag, usually by wire. rable runway designated generally by the 55 lVhen filling the bags at the packing plant, reference character 5.

Then on the other end vious, when the bag is open, the fastener is 60 of the bag there is a valve in which the spout on the l f h n n O h r nway and when ofthe filling-machine is placed for filling the 1t is desired to close it, it is simply gripped Y bag. and shifted over to the right hand end as This method of filling cement bags utilizes shown in Figure 1. In addition to these deunnecessary time and labor at the packing tails, however, I provide a strap 8 which is as plant and is disadvantageous to the confastened at 6 n o 0 1 ide of the bag tractor who receives the filled bags, for it Mi Wh h i apted to be brought over the ne itate i in of th b f u tl shdable fastener 6 and fastened down as in when the wire cannot be moved inan expedlcated i ig r 2 and 3- In this Connecditious manner.
