Not working out in reality though?
    Jcarlin: Look at your hands again. If your thumbs are where your little fingers are, it would maybe be possible to hold the bag with fingers while pushing the bar ... but only for small bags. For full width ones like I need for whole pheasants, it still wouldn't work even if I had non-opposing thumbs because the bar is right underneath the bag. I really have no idea what the idiot was thinking who designed this contraption. It obviously was not tested by anyone before being approved for mass production.

      Oh.. THAT'S where my thumbs are.

      I was kind of picturing my natural keyboard resting pose with my thumbs at the bottoms of slightly inward facing "C"s.
      BTW, I don't know what I was thinking. My locking lever is one side only. The bar that gets pushed down is just the one that holds the trimmer.
