I found a heritage ii shakeout bag and took the bag off to wash it. The trouble is I cant get the bag back around the oval emptor. Any suggestions on how to do this? I feel like it should not be this hard to do. Any suggestions will help!

With the right technique, it is not too hard. You have to get it started on the back side, then ROLL the front edges on with your index fingers and thumb.

See reply #2 of this thread for details and pics:

It can be done with one person but another to hold the emtor is ideal.
Hope this helps..

Thank you for the help! I was able to get the bag on the emptor.

You can also push the mini emtor through the top of the bag to the bottom. Makes it much easier to put the spring on that way.

This was the shake out bag emptor with the shake out bag. I appreciate the feedback though!
