ATLANTA -- Most teenagers like potato chips, but forget to close up the bag after eating them.

Brothers Drew and Jack Gillet usually use clips or rubber bands to close their chip bags, but admit that sometimes air gets in the bags and makes the chips stale.

That's why they're excited to try Gripstic, a sealing stick that claims to close bags tightly and keep food fresh.

Drew tests the product on a large bag. He folds the top of the bag down, allows the yellow guide to slide in the crease and then pulls the whole contraption over the top of the fold.

"It does a pretty good job," he says.

The Gripstic works on both chip bags and freezer bags.

But the brothers admit the appearance of the device is deceptive.

"I mean, if I saw this without reading directions, you would not know what to do with it," Drew says.

Despite its look, Jack likes how it works more than the traditional way of sealing bags.

"It's great. It really holds the bag together. It's better than just a normal clip," he says.

Overall, the Gillet boys find the product a success. They give the Gripstic two thumbs up.
