You mean main packing? Then all you need is a pull up cord that should be easy to find for free anywhere....

To pack a main? All your really need is a pullup cord, which are practically free. You might also want a weight, which you can make dozens of different ways. This will cost you somewhere between nothing and next-to-nothing.

Some people sell a small packing tool for around $17 that helps close mains as useful for other things. Do a search for "powertool" at Square 1 or Paragear.

But you don't need it - it just makes things easier. Like has been said, all you need is a pullup cord. Maybe a rubberband or two depending on how many you broke Wink
