He shall also execute and deliver to the officer who made such levy, his bond, with two or more good and sufficient sureties, to be approved by such officer, payable to the plaintiff in such writ, for an amount equal to double the value of the property so claimed, to be assessed by such officer. When more than one writ has been levied, the bond may be made payable to all the plaintiffs in the several writs levied. Said bond shall inure to the benefit of all the plaintiffs in the several writs according to their respective priorities in time of levy. Upon the approval of such bond and delivery of the property to the claimant, the same shall be deemed in custodia legis, and shall not be, taken out of his possession by any other like writ or writs; but said writs may be levied on the same by giving notice to the claimant; and in such cases the claimant's bond shall also inure to the benefit of the several plaintiffs in such writ according to their respective priorities.
