Kuraray's wholly owned subsidiary Kuraray Trading Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo) will launch Anylock, sealers for opened plastic bags that are ideal outdoors or on the road, as well as for household use. Anylock is a functional product developed in South Korea with a simple slide-in stick operation to tightly seal bags containing food. Anylock was initially released at seven major branches of Tokyu Hands January 2006, and it has also been used by other businesses as a sales promotion tool.

Anylock package sealers are long and slender, enabling plastic bags to be made airtight with a simple slide-in operation. Plastic bags containing pickles or liquids, tiny grains like sugar or moisture-sensitive dried food like potato chips can be easily made airtight. Anylock is strong and durable, making it suitable for repeated use over extended periods. The product is available in five colors and five different sizes.

Anylock

Opened plastic bags are generally fastened by elastic bands, wire twists or clips. However, this troublesome process provides inferior results. Some plastic bags offer zippers, but crumbs can get stuck in groove and they don't always close properly. Anylock surmounts these problems. This revolutionary sealing device doesn't takes much space, and provides maximum convenience and results, whether it's in kitchens, living rooms, during outdoor activities or while traveling.
