  • The thin parts 21 . 22 are also at the time of molding the unit case 2 in the same way as the flat ribs three integrally formed. On the front surface of the flat part 20 that forms the side, the pair of plane ribs three facing, are the recessed front thin surface parts 21 formed by pulling in the Y-axis upward direction, while on the rear surface facing the opposite side (side on which the pair of plane ribs three not facing each other) forms recessed rear thin surface portions 22 by pulling in the Y-axis downward direction.
  • In this way, the unitary housing 2 with the pair of flat ribs three of the present embodiment, by being formed only in an axial direction (Y-axis direction). In other words, the unitary case becomes 2 with the pair of flat ribs three is formed such that it has no portions that can be considered to be protruding when viewed from the Y-axis direction.
  • If next the clamp 1 of the present embodiment based on 1 and three is declared, is the pinch 1 with a rectangular shaped base end part 10 for fastening a retaining element 4a , which is part of a wiring harness 4 holds, trained. This base end part 10 is with a pair of flush outer wall mountings 11 formed facing each other and outwardly with a slope on the facing edges of the base end portion 10 expand.
  • In addition, the base end part 10 with a pair of inner wall holding pieces 12 formed from central positions of the other facing edges of the base end portion 10 towards the same sides as the outer wall support pieces 11 extend. Here are the direction of opposing the pair of outer wall holding pieces 11 (X-axis direction) and the direction of opposing the pair of inner wall holding pieces (FIG. 12 ) (Z-axis direction) are formed so as to intersect vertically.
  • Here, the clamp of the present embodiment is formed by drawing in the two axial directions of the Y-axis direction and the Z-axis direction. The base end part 10 is formed, with the draw holes 10a are required when the front end stop parts 121 of the pair of inner wall holding pieces 12 be formed, which will be explained later.
  • The pair of outer wall holding pieces 11 forms outer wall holding parts, which are the outer wall surfaces 3b the pair of plane ribs three on the facing inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 hold when the clamp 1 and the pair of flat ribs three to be fastened (fixing stage). The inner wall surfaces 11a the pair of outer wall holding pieces 11 are formed in shapes extending from the base end portion 100 in a reverse V-shape to expand downward in the state in which they are inclined in each other in the direction of approach, with the outer wall surfaces 3b the pair of plane ribs three connect to.
  • Further, the pair of outer wall holding pieces 11 is formed so that the distance between the front end parts (sides opposite to the base end parts 10 ) wider than the distance of the facing pair of plane ribs three becomes. This serves to make the pair of plane ribs three in inclined directions, when the inner wall surfaces 11a be brought to the pair of outer wall holding pieces 11 to be facing, and the pair of plane ribs three against each other (adjacent stage).
  • The thickness side surfaces 11b the front end sides of the outer wall holding pieces 11 are with guides that lock in the Z-axis direction 13 provided, which the thickness side surfaces 11b the facing outer wall holding pieces 11 connect and against the plane ribs three abut to prevent the clamp 1 in the plane directions of the plane ribs three (Z-axis direction) releases.
  • The pair of inner wall holding pieces 12 forms inner wall holding parts, which are the inner wall surfaces 3a the pair of plane ribs three through lateral wall surfaces 121 the later explained front end support parts 121 in the inner wall holding parts 12 hold when the clamp 1 and the pair of flat ribs three be attached.
  • The pair of inner wall holding pieces 12 is with columnar parts 120 formed, extending vertically from the base end part 10 to the front end sides (end parts on the opposite side from the base end part 10 ), while the foremost end sides of the columnar parts 120 with front end support parts 121 are formed, which are located on the sides near the inner wall surfaces 11a of the pair of outer wall holding pieces 11 extend parallel in the X-axis direction. The shapes of the inner wall holding pieces 12 are inverted T-shapes when viewed from the Z-axis direction.
  • The front end parts of the front end holding parts 121 in the X-axis direction are with side wall surfaces 121 trained, the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 are facing. The lateral wall surfaces 121 are from the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 separated by distances corresponding to the thicknesses of the plane ribs three correspond, and are inclined to parallel to the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 to be. Notice here that the distances between the side wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 and the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 not exactly the same dimensions as the thicknesses of the flat ribs three include the normally allowed design error.
  • Further, the pair of front end support members 121 with protruding parts 121b formed, which protrude in the direction of the facing sides. The protruding parts 121b the pair of front end tethers 121 are formed in the shape curved (inclined surfaces). They are designed such that the facing portions of the front end support members 121 in the adjacent stage of the clamp 1 and the pair of plane ribs three to be brought seamlessly against the beveled parts 3c3 and the inclined surfaces 3c4 the lateral wall surfaces 3c the pair of plane ribs three to be abutted and made to deform elastically in separate directions.
  • Here is the distance between the protruding parts 121b the facing front end holding parts 121 shorter than the planar horizontal widths of the front end parts 3a the flat ribs three (Widths in the Z-axis direction), while the distance between the front end parts of the X-axis direction of the front end support members 121 longer than the distance between the front end parts 3a the pair of plane ribs three is trained.
  • The pair of inner wall holding pieces 12 is formed such that the protruding parts 121b of the pair of front end holding parts 121 against the chamfered parts 3c3 the front end parts 31 the pair of plane ribs three abut and thereby deform elastically in mutually separating directions and form the pair of elastic holding pieces.
  • The inner wall surfaces 11a the pair of outer wall holding parts 11 and the side wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 the pair of inner wall holding parts 12 Form gripping parts that are capable of the pair of plane ribs three in the state in which they tend in mutually approaching directions to grasp. The inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 and the side wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 the inner wall holding pieces 12 are separated by the distance which corresponds to the thicknesses of the plane ribs three corresponds and inclines parallel to each other so that the gripping parts also incline with respect to the base end part 10 are formed.
  • Next, the fastening method for attaching the clamp 1 and a pair of flat ribs three with the above construction based on 4 to 6A to 6C described. Here is 4 a cross-sectional view along the line BB of a mounting structure of a terminal in a first adjacent stage to the terminal 1 and the flat rib three to let lie 5A is a cross-sectional view along the line AA in the second adjacent stage, 5B FIG. 4 is a cross-sectional view taken along line B - B in the second adjacent stage. FIG. 6A is a perspective view in a mounting stage, 6B is a cross-sectional view along the line AA in the mounting stage, and 6C is a cross-sectional view along the line BB of the terminal 1 in the attachment stage. Note that the cross-sectional view along the line AA is a cross-sectional view from the Z-axis direction of the cross section parallel to the Y-axis direction in the center of the X-axis direction of the attachment structure of a clamp in FIG 1 is considered while the cross-sectional view along the line BB is a cross-sectional view when the cross section parallel to the Y-axis direction in the center of the Z-axis direction of the attachment structure of a clamp in 1 from the X-axis direction.
  • First, the clamp 1 brought in a direction in which they are the flat part 20 from a vertical direction (Y-axis downward direction) approaches to move. In a first adjacent stage in which the clamp 1 and the pair of flat ribs three , as in 5A and 5B can be made to lie against each other, lie the outer wall surfaces 3b the front end parts 31 the pair of plane ribs three against the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 at. On the flat ribs three act due to the concern against the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 Forces in mutually approaching directions, causing the pair of plane ribs three to lean in mutually approaching directions.
  • Here the thin parts deform 21 . 22 , the front surface and rear surface, which in the surroundings of the attached end portions of the plane ribs three of the unit housing 2 are formed plastically, resulting in the flat ribs three which tend in mutually approaching directions to rotate around the attached end portions.
  • After the first adjacent stage, the flat ribs incline three , as in 6A shown, in the second adjacent stage, in which the clamp 1 is brought to a direction in which they are the flat part 20 approaching, moving farther, continuing in approaching directions, by striking against the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 issue.
  • Furthermore, the protruding parts are 121b the front end holding parts 121 the inner wall holding pieces 12 in the second adjacent stage, as in 6B shown against the beveled parts 3c3 and the inclined surfaces 3c4 attached to the side wall surfaces 3c the pair of plane ribs three are formed on, and the pair of inner wall holding parts 12 deforms elastically in separate directions. Here acts in the second adjacent stage, the force due to the inner wall retaining pieces 12 and the flat ribs three , which abut against each other, acts in the Z-axis direction.
  • Next, the flat ribs three in the attachment stage of attaching the pair of plane ribs three and the clamp 1 , as in 7A to 7C shown at the gripping parts of the outer wall holding pieces 11 and the inner wall holding pieces 12 gripped and attached to the clamp.
  • Declaring this mounting stage have plane ribs three , similar to the slope of the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 and the side wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 the inner wall-holding pieces (inclination of the gripping parts), an inclination in directions that approach each other by being against the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 issue.
  • Here are the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 and the side wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 separated by distances corresponding to the thicknesses of the plane ribs three correspond, then the fitting condition of the lateral wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 and the side wall surfaces 3c the flat ribs three raised, and the state before the elastic deformation is restored. That is, on the inner wall holding pieces 12 is no longer affected by the adjoining effect of the lateral wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 and the side wall surfaces 3c the flat ribs three acted upon, and they are restored to the state before the elastic deformation.
  • If the inner wall holding pieces 12 restored to the state before the elastic deformation, the side wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 the inner wall holding pieces 12 in the state where the outer wall surfaces 3b the flat ribs three in surface contact with the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 are in surface contact with the inner wall surfaces 3a the flat ribs three ,
  • Because of this, the pair of flat ribs three and the clamp 1 attached, with the pair of flat ribs three gripping parts are gripped from the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 and the side wall surfaces 121 the front end holding parts 121 the inner wall holding pieces 12 consist.
  • Even if in this fixed state, a force acts in a direction that the clamp 1 pulls out (Y-axis upward direction), a force acts on the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 in one to the pullout direction of the clamp 1 reverse direction (Y-axis downward direction), it can prevent the terminal 1 from the pair of flat ribs three is pulled out.
  • As explained above, in the present embodiment, it is possible to make the attachment structure of the clamp one that does not require separate metal members in which the clamp 1 not in the pair of flat ribs three lind that is inexpensive and has high security by making the structure a plastic clamp 1 and a pair of flat plastic ribs three attached.
  • Further, since it is possible to use the unit case 2 with the integrally formed pair of planar ribs three can be formed by pulling only in an axial direction, the increase in the number of steps in forming the unitary housing 2 be suppressed.
  • Further, in the attachment stage of the pair of plane ribs three and the clamp 1 due to the Z-axis locking guides 13 Even if the clamp is pulled in the Z-axis direction, the clamp can be prevented 1 from the pair of flat ribs three is pulled out.

  • In this context, the pair is plane ribs three is formed such that it is capable of inclining in an approaching direction or a separating direction. When in the attached state, an external force from a direction parallel to the flat part 20 (X- and Z-axis directions) is applied, for this reason, the external force from the terminal 1 on the pair of flat ribs three act, and the pair of flat ribs three can detach from the gripping parts. Therefore, the present embodiment is constructed such that it allows to prevent the clamp 1 is pulled out of the pair of planar ribs when an external force is applied to the clamp 1 in a direction parallel to the surface direction of the flat part 20 (X- and Z-axis directions) is applied.
  • Below is the structure of the blocking structure of the terminal 1 based on 19 to 21 explained. As in 19 and 20 shown is the clamp 1 of the present embodiment is formed to have a rectangular outer Has shape when viewed from the vertical direction of the flat part (Y-axis direction). For this reason, the back surfaces of the inner wall surfaces 11a the outer wall holding pieces 11 the clamp 1 that is, the outer wall surfaces 11c are formed so as to become surfaces that are vertical to the base end part 10 are.
  • Further, positions that correspond to the four corners of the outer shape when they are from the vertical direction of the flat part 20 in a tight spot 1 (Y-axis direction), with recessed parts 113 formed, which form the blocking parts. In particular, the recessed parts 113 between the outer wall surfaces 11c and the thickness side surfaces 11b the outer wall holding pieces 11 educated.
  • The recessed parts 113 are formed so that they are in relation to the flat part 20 extend in vertical directions. Further, the recessed parts 113 with first recessed surfaces 113a parallel to the outer wall surfaces 11c the outer wall bracket 11 and second recessed surfaces 113b formed parallel to the thickness side directions.
  • On the other hand, the flat part 20 of the unit housing 2 with four locking protruding parts 23 formed in the vertical direction (Y-axis upward direction) of the flat part 20 protrude and are formed in square pillar shapes that correspond to the recessed parts 113 correspond. Note that four locking protruding parts 23 like the pair of flat ribs three , in the vertical direction of the flat part 20 protrude and thus at the time of forming the unitary housing 2 can be molded integrally.

For this reason, an external force coming from one direction parallel to the outer flat part 20 (X- and Z-axis directions) is applied to the clamp, caused to pass through the holes which form the locking parts on the locking protruding parts 23 to act. As a result, it is possible to fix the attachment structure of the clamp 1 and the pair of protruding parts three to make stronger.
  • Here, the holes constituting the locking parts may be formed to have inner dimensions smaller than the outer dimensions of the flat part 20 trained locking protruding parts 23 are. That is, the dimensional tolerance between the holes forming the locking parts and the locking protruding parts 23 can be set such that a fit is obtained at all times, which provides a tightening margin, when the holes constituting the locking parts and the locking protruding parts 23 be connected to each other.
  • As a result, it is possible to have the locking protruding parts 23 in the holes forming the locking parts press, and possible, the mounting structure of the clamp 1 and the pair of plane ribs three to make stronger.
  • Note that the locking protruding parts 23 are constructed such that their outer circumferences match the inner peripheries of the holes forming the blocking parts. The External force applied to the clamp can be made to pass from a hole to a locking protruding part 23 to act. For this reason, it is sufficient to have at least one set of a locking projecting part 23 and a hole at the terminal respectively 1 and the flat part 20 train.
  • Further, when the locking parts are holes as in the present embodiment, it is also possible to have the locking parts passing through the holes on the flat part 20 be formed to form the locking protruding parts 23 at the terminal 1 be formed and trained at the terminal 1 trained locking protruding parts 23 to bring in the holes of the flat part 20 intervene.
