Title: Bag comprising complementary closure strips actuated by a cursor

Abstract: The present invention provides a bag comprising two generally parallel sheets forming the main walls of the bag, complementary closure strips fixed to respective ones of said sheets in the vicinity of the mouth of the bag, and a cursor having two side flanges interconnected by a web, the flanges being placed on the outsides of the sheets at the mouth of the bag and co-operating with a central elongate tongue to define two converging passages for the complementary closure strips, wherein the tongue is interrupted so as to be set back from the longitudinal end of the cursor, in particular at the wider end of the cursor corresponding to the diverging ends of the passages, and wherein side flanges are provided in the vicinity of their free edges remote from the web with urging means for urging the sheets of the bag towards each other, said means occupying the entire longitudinal extent of the tongue and extending longitudinally beyond each end thereof so as to ensure that the bag is leakproof when it is in its closed position.
