Description

  The present invention relates to a connector attachment structure attached to a vehicle body and the like and a bracket used therefor.

  As a connector mounting structure for mounting a wire harness connector to a vehicle body or the like, for example, a connector mounting hole is formed in a support body such as a panel, and the connector tip is engaged with the mounting hole to connect the connector to the support body. It is common to attach (patent document 1).

  In this case, since the connector must be inserted into the mounting hole from the back side of the panel, there is a problem that the mounting work is extremely difficult in a structure in which an operator's hand does not enter the back side of the panel.

Therefore, the connector is mounted from the front of the panel by opening one end of the mounting hole formed in both the support body such as a panel and the bracket for mounting the connector on the panel, and by setting the open ends in different directions. There is also known a connector mounting structure that enables this (Patent Document 2).
JP-A-10-129299, paragraph 0034, FIGS. 16 to 18 Japanese Utility Model Publication No. 1-79285, FIG.

  However, in the conventional connector mounting structure described above, the bracket must also be removed from the panel in order to replace the connector. For this reason, there is a problem that maintenance workability is lacking.

  In order to attach the connector to the fitting hole formed in the bracket with the bracket attached to the support surface, the height of the bracket mounting surface from the support surface must be greater than the height of the connector. When it is applied to automobiles, etc., the living space is pressed. Moreover, when the height of a bracket is high, there also exists a problem that it is easy to deform | transform with respect to the load of a height direction.

  The present invention has been made in view of the above points, and it is possible to facilitate the attachment of the connector, improve the workability of the maintenance, and achieve the downsizing of the connector attachment structure and use the same. The purpose is to provide a blanket.

  The connector mounting structure according to the present invention is a connector mounting structure having a bracket fixed to a support surface and a connector attached to the bracket, the bracket being fixed to the support surface, and the bracket flange. The base end of the connector rises to a height that can be accommodated, and has a mounting surface on which the connector is mounted from the front, and the mounting surface receives the base end of the connector and a wire harness extending from the base end side A connector body part having a body part formed with a fitting part with one open end possible, the connector having a distal end part coupled to a mating connector and a wire harness connected to a proximal end part, and the connector When mounting to the bracket by projecting along the surface perpendicular to the connector coupling direction on the side of the main body A connector flange that contacts the mounting surface; and an engaging portion that is provided on a side surface of the connector main body portion closer to the base end side than the connector flange and engages with the bracket when the connector is attached to the bracket. It is characterized by that.

  In addition, the bracket for attaching the connector according to the present invention is attached to the support surface by being fixed to the support surface, and the flange fixed to the support surface and the base end portion of the connector can be accommodated from the flange. And a fitting portion having an attachment surface on which the connector is attached from the front surface, and an open end that can accommodate a proximal end portion of the connector and a wire harness extending from the proximal end side on the attachment surface. And a main body formed.

  The fitting portion may be a fitting hole formed on the attachment surface with one end opened, or a recess formed on the attachment surface with one end opened.

  According to the present invention, the connector can be attached from the front surface of the mounting surface of the bracket, and the assembling work is simplified. Moreover, even during maintenance such as connector replacement and repair, the bracket itself does not need to be removed from the support surface, and only the connector can be removed from the front surface, improving maintenance workability and height. Can be shortened.

  Embodiments of the present invention will be described below with reference to the accompanying drawings.

  FIG. 1 is a perspective view of an exploded state of the connector mounting structure according to the first embodiment of the present invention, and FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the connector mounting structure.

  The bracket 10 is fixed to a support surface such as a vehicle body via a blanket flange 11, and has a mounting surface 12 on a main body portion 13 rising from the blanket flange 11. The connector 20 is attached to the attachment surface 12 from the front surface. In this embodiment, a fitting hole 14 into which the connector 20 is fitted is formed on the mounting surface 12 as a fitting portion into which the connector 20 is fitted, and one end of the fitting hole 14 is opened by the notch 15. Yes.

  On the other hand, the connector 20 has a connector main body portion 24 whose front end portion is coupled to a mating connector (not shown) and the wire harness 23 is connected to the proximal end portion, and a side surface of the connector main body portion 24 along a plane orthogonal to the connector coupling direction. Connector flange 21 that protrudes from the connector flange 21 and an elastic engagement that is provided on the side surface closer to the base end side than the connector flange 21 of the connector main body 24 and engages with the fitting hole 14 of the bracket 10 when the connector 20 is attached to the bracket 10. It comprises a piece 22. The connector flange 21 is also open at a portion corresponding to the notch 15, and a wire cover portion 25 that guides the wire harness 23 and protects the lower side thereof is formed in this portion.

  According to this configuration, if the connector 20 is inserted from the proximal end side into the fitting hole 14 of the bracket so that the wire cover portion 25 of the connector 20 is fitted into the notch 15, the wire harness 23 is attached to the bracket 10. Therefore, the connector 20 can be mounted from the front surface of the mounting surface 12 of the bracket 10. At the time of fitting, the flange 21 of the connector 20 abuts on the mounting surface 12 of the bracket 10, and the elastic engagement pieces 22 on the side surface of the connector 20 are engaged with the edges 16 on both sides of the fitting hole 14, whereby the connector 20. And the bracket 10 are combined.

  According to this embodiment, since the connector 20 can be attached from the front surface of the bracket 10, attachment and removal with the bracket 10 fixed to the support surface are facilitated, and assembly and maintenance workability are improved. Further, since the height of the bracket 10 can be reduced, the overall size can be reduced and the strength can be increased.

  In addition, even if it is the bracket 10 by which one end was open | released by bending the edge part by the side of the non-opening side of the main-body part 13 of the bracket 10 in the L-shaped cross section, the sufficient intensity | strength can be ensured. It is possible to make the bracket 10 difficult to deform.

  FIG. 3 is a perspective view of a bracket 10 ′ according to the second embodiment of the present invention. In this embodiment, the attachment surface 12 is formed with a recess 18 having one end opened, and the recess 18 forms a fitting portion with the connector. The elastic engagement pieces 22 of the connector 20 engage with the holes 19 formed on both sides of the recess 18. The hole 19 may be a step.

  According to this structure, a sufficient strength can be ensured as compared with the previous embodiment, and the bracket 10 ′ is more difficult to deform.

It is a disassembled perspective view of the attachment structure of the connector which concerns on the 1st Embodiment of this invention. It is an external appearance perspective view at the time of attachment of the attachment structure. It is a perspective view of the bracket used with the attachment structure of the connector which concerns on the 2nd Embodiment of this invention.
