Description

  The present invention relates to a console box. More specifically, the present invention relates to a console body that defines an article storage portion that opens upward, a tray member that is disposed in an upper opening of the article storage portion, and an upper portion of the console body. The present invention relates to a console box including a console lid that is provided and opens and closes an article storage unit.

  In a car such as a sedan type or a station wagon type, for example, a console box as illustrated in FIG. 9A is installed on the floor between the front seats (between the driver seat and the passenger seat). This console box CO1 is mainly composed of a console body 10 made of synthetic resin, which is an injection molding member, and an article storage portion 16 that opens upward is provided at the rear side portion of the console body 10 so that personal accessories can be taken in and out. It can be stored as possible. A console lid 14 is provided at the rear upper part of the console body 10 so that the upper opening 16A of the article storage portion 16 can be opened, and the console lid 14 is rotated backward to store the article. The article can be taken in and out of the section 16. Since the console lid 14 is positioned adjacent to a front seat (not shown), the console lid 14 also functions as an armrest for an occupant using the front seat.

The console box CO1 illustrated in FIG. 9A is a type in which a tray member 12 in which an article placement unit 18 is formed is additionally provided between the article storage unit 16 and the console lid 14. The tray member 12 is suitable for storing various small items such as coins, ball-point pens, mobile phones, and glasses, which have a relatively small or thin shape, and is similar to the console lid 14 described above by using a hinge. A form pivoted on the main body 10 has been put into practical use. In addition, regarding the console box provided with such a tray member 12, it is disclosed by patent document 1, for example.
Japanese Patent Laid-Open No. 11-59278

  By the way, in the console box CO1 illustrated in FIG. 9A, the loading / unloading of articles with respect to the article placement section 18 of the tray member 12 is realized by opening only the console lid 14, and the article storage section 16 of the console body 10 is loaded. As shown in FIG. 9B, the loading / unloading of the article is realized by opening both the console lid 14 and the tray member 12 together. For this reason, when the article is taken in and out of the article storage unit 16, the tray member 12 and the console lid 14 are also rotated and tilted to near vertical, so that they are stored and placed on the article placement unit 18 of the tray member 12. There was a disadvantage that the haberdashery that had been moved shifted to the rear side in the article placement portion 18 and became messy.

  In order to solve the disadvantage inherent in the console box CO1 illustrated in FIG. 9, a console box CO2 having the configuration illustrated in FIG. 10A has been proposed. In this console box CO2, for example, the rear end of the tray member 12 is pivotally attached to the substantially lower center of the console lid 14, and a boss 20 disposed on the side surface of the tray member 12 is provided on the inner wall of the console body 10. The structure is such that the guide rail member 22 is slidably fitted. For this reason, as illustrated in FIG. 10B, the tray member 12 is held in a substantially horizontal state when the console lid 14 is opened while sliding backward based on the swinging displacement of the lever body 24. The console body slides to the rear side of the console body 10 in a passive manner.

  However, since the tray member 12 moved rearward is still located in the upper opening 16A of the article storage portion 16, the opening width W in the upper opening 16A becomes narrower and the opening area becomes smaller, and the article storage. Of course, it is difficult to take in and out the article to and from the portion 16, and there is a disadvantage that it is impossible to take in and out a slightly large-sized article. Further, since the tray member 12 is positioned in the vicinity of the opened console lid 14, when the opened console lid 14 is tilted forward, the tray member 12 is covered over the tray member 12. There was a problem that it was difficult to carry in and out the haberdashery with respect to the tray member 12. 10B, the tray member 12 can be rotated with respect to the opened console lid 14 as exemplified by a two-dot chain line. Even if a large-sized article can be taken in and out, a problem arises in which the haberdash in the article placement unit 18 shifts in the same manner as the conventional console box CO1 illustrated in FIG. 9, and the problem cannot be solved yet. It was still.

  Furthermore, in each of the console boxes CO1 and CO2 illustrated in FIGS. 9 and 10, the console lid 14 must be opened in order to load and unload the articles with respect to the article placing portion 18 of the tray member 12. It was. However, the opening / closing operation of the console lid 14 is such that the occupant seated in the front seat is forced to take a cramped posture of twisting the upper body while raising the arm, so that only the haberdash is taken in and out of the tray member 12. However, there was a problem that accompanied troublesome and troublesome operations.

  Therefore, in the present invention, the console lid and the tray member are connected to each other by a link mechanism, and the console lid is opened and closed with an appropriate time difference with respect to the advancement and retraction of the tray member. An object of the present invention is to provide a console box that can be simplified and can be easily loaded and unloaded with respect to a tray member.

In order to solve the above-mentioned problems and achieve the intended purpose, the present invention provides:
A console body that defines an article storage section that opens upward, a tray member that is disposed in an upper opening of the article storage section, and a console that is disposed on the console body and opens and closes the article storage section. In the console box consisting of lid,
A first link member pivotally attached at one end thereof to the tray member arranged to move forward and backward in the console body;
The console lid arranged to be rotatable with respect to the console body and the second link member pivotally attached to the other end of the first link member.
When the tray member housed in the console body is extended forward, the first link member and the second link member are linked to each other in the extending direction, thereby closing the console body. Rotate the console lid in the opening direction with an appropriate time difference,
When the tray member that has been extended is retracted and stored in the console body, a link operation in a contracting direction is applied to the first link member and the second link member, so that the console lid that has been opened can be appropriately timed. With this, the console body is rotated in the closing direction.

  According to the console box according to the present invention, the console lid can be opened and closed appropriately with a time difference with respect to the advancement and retraction of the tray member by the link operation in the extending direction or the contracting direction of the first link member and the second link member. There is an advantage that the opening / closing operation of the console lid can be simplified. In other words, the console lid can be opened and closed simply by moving the tray member forward and backward, and the console lid can be closed in a natural posture with the arms extended forward and downward, and the console lid that opens and closes contacts the arms, etc. Can be avoided. Since it is also possible to advance and retract only the tray member without opening and closing the console lid, there is also an advantage that articles can be easily put in and out of the tray member without opening and closing the console lid. In addition, when the console lid is opened, the tray member moves to a position retracted from the upper opening of the article storage unit, so that the opening area of the upper opening is enlarged and articles can be taken in and out of the article storage unit. There are also advantages that can be easily achieved.

  Next, a preferred embodiment of the console box according to the present invention will be described below with reference to the accompanying drawings. In the embodiments to be described later, the same members / parts as those already described in FIGS. 9 and 10 will be described with the same reference numerals. For convenience of explanation, the front side of the vehicle body is the front side of the console box.

  FIG. 1 is a schematic perspective view showing a console box according to a preferred embodiment with a tray member pulled out, and FIG. 2 is a partial side view showing the console box in a partially broken state in FIG. It is. FIG. 3 is a schematic perspective view showing the console box of this embodiment in a state in which the tray member is accommodated, and FIG. 4 is a partial side view showing the console box in a state of FIG. It is. 5 is a schematic perspective view showing the console box of the present embodiment in a state where the tray member is pulled out and the console lid is opened, and FIG. 6 is a partially cutaway view of the console box in the state of FIG. It is the partial side view shown. The console box CN of the present embodiment includes a console body 10 that defines an article storage section 16 that opens upward, a tray member 12 that is disposed in an upper opening 16A of the article storage section 16, and a console body 10. It is basically composed of a console lid 14 that is rotatably disposed at the upper part and opens and closes the article storage unit 16.

  The console body 10 includes an outer member 30 that is a molded member made of a synthetic resin that is injection-molded from a synthetic resin material such as polypropylene (PP), for example, and the above-described article storage portion 16 that is defined inside the outer member 30. It consists of an inner member 32 to be assembled, and its front side is connected to the center of an instrument panel (not shown). And the change lever 34, drink holder 36, etc. are provided in the front part, and the above-mentioned article storage part 16 is demarcated in the rear part set higher than the front part, A tray storage section 38 is defined above the upper opening 16A of the article storage section 16. A support member 40 fixed to the inner member 32 described above protrudes upward at the rear portion of the rear portion, and a pivot shaft 42 for pivotally supporting the console lid 14 is horizontally supported at the tip portion thereof. Has been. Reference numeral 44 denotes an ornament that is a separate member from the outer member 30.

  The tray member 12 is formed by injection molding from a synthetic resin material such as polypropylene (PP), for example, and has a tray body 70 having a shape and size that can be matched with the tray storage portion 38 described above, and a composite material such as polypropylene (PP). A tray panel 72 that is injection-molded from a resin material and is mounted on the front side of the tray main body 70 to form a part of the console main body 10, and an article placement section 18 that opens upward in the tray main body 70. It has been laid. In addition, on the left and right side walls of the tray body 70, slide pieces 74, 74 that are slidably contacted with guide grooves 46, 46 extending on the left and right wall surfaces of the inner member 32 facing the tray storage portion 38 are provided. It is provided in a state extending to the required length backward. As a result, the slide member 74 is always supported in a horizontal posture with respect to the console body 10 by the slide pieces 74 and 74 being fitted in the guide grooves 46 and 46 correspondingly, and the slide pieces 74 and 74 are also supported. Is slid along the guide grooves 46 and 46 so that the console body 10 can be slid in the front-rear direction. One end of a first link member 82 in a link mechanism 80 to be described later is pivotally attached to the slide piece 74, and a storage position (stored in the tray storage unit 38 of the console body 10 by the link operation in the link mechanism 80 ( 4), a first extending position (FIG. 2) extending forward from the console body 10, and further retracting from the upper opening 16A of the article storage section 16 further forward than the first extending position. The second extended position (FIG. 6) is displaced while being held in a horizontal posture.

  In the console body 10, a known constant tension spring (first biasing means) 76 connected to the bottom surface of the tray body 70 of the tray member 12 is disposed below the tray storage portion 38 described above. The tray member 12 is always elastically biased in the extending direction. In addition, a push latch type engagement / disengagement device (not shown) that is paired with a member disposed inside the console body 10 is disposed at the rear portion of the tray body 70, and the tray panel 72 is held at a fingertip. The tray member 12 is slid forward (advanced) by pushing backward or pressing a lid release button 64 described later to appropriately retract the tray member 12 to release the locked state by the engagement / disengagement device. Is acceptable. Further, when the tray member 12 extending to the first extension position or the second extension position is pushed rearward and slid (retracted) to the tray storage portion 38, the engagement / disengagement device is again locked. The tray member 12 is stored and held in the tray storage portion 38.

  The console lid 14 is injection-molded from a synthetic resin material such as polypropylene (PP), for example, and has the same shape and size as the lid outer member 50 that can be aligned with the lid placement portion that is the upper surface of the rear portion described above. A lid inner member 52 is formed by injection molding from a synthetic resin material such as polypropylene (PP) and is mounted on the inner side of the lid outer member 50. A cushion material 54 and a skin material 56 are disposed on the outer surface of the lid outer member 50 as necessary to improve the texture and touch, and also function as an armrest for an occupant using a front seat (not shown). It is like that. In such a console lid 14, the support protrusion 58 formed on the lid inner member 52 is pivotally mounted on the pivot shaft 42 that is penetrated and supported by the support member 40 described above, and falls down on the upper surface of the console body 10 to store articles. The closed position (FIGS. 3 and 4) covering the part 16 and the article placing part 18 of the tray member 12 and the open position (stands vertically from the console body 10 to expose the article storage part 16 to the outside). 5 and 6).

  A torsion spring (second biasing means) 60 is disposed on the pivot shaft 42 described above, and the console lid 14 is always elastically biased with an appropriate biasing force in the opening direction. The torsion spring 60 is not for actively opening the console lid 14 in the closed position in the opening direction, but for holding the console lid 14 opened to the open position in a substantially vertical state. . In addition, hook-shaped locking protrusions 62 and 62 that are detachably engaged with a lock mechanism (not shown) disposed inside the console main body 10 protrude from both sides of the front end of the lid inner member 52. The console lid 14 is held in the closed state by engaging the locking projections 62 and 62 with the lock mechanism. The locking state between the locking protrusion 62 and the locking mechanism is released by pressing a lid opening button 64 disposed on the side wall of the console body 10. When pressed, the console lid 14 is slightly rotated by the urging force of the torsion spring 60 described above to be displaced open.

  In the console box CN of the present embodiment, as illustrated in FIGS. 2, 4, and 6, the first end portion of the console box CN is pivotally attached to the tray member 12 that is movably disposed in the console body 10. A first link member 82, a console lid 14 rotatably disposed with respect to the console body 10, and a second link member 84 pivotally attached to the other end of the first link member 82. And the tray member 12 and the console lid 14 are connected to each other. The link mechanism 80 is, so to speak, an expansion / contraction mechanism that connects the tray member 12 and the console lid 14, and does not always interlock the rotation of the console lid 14 with the forward / backward movement of the tray member 12. The link operation is performed when the head 12 is moved forward or backward, thereby functioning to open or close the console lid 14 with an appropriate time difference.

That is, as will be described later, the first link member 82 and the second link member 84 of the link mechanism 80 rotate within a range of a predetermined angle around the mutual connecting portion 88 to perform link operations in the extending direction and the contracting direction. By doing so, the following operation modes (1) to (3) can be realized with respect to the advancement / retraction of the tray member 12 and the opening / closing of the console lid 14.
(1) When the tray member 12 accommodated in the console body 10 is extended forward to the second extension position, the console lid 14 closed to the console body 10 is opened in an appropriate direction with an appropriate time difference. Can be rotated.
(2) When the tray member 12 extending to the second extending position is retracted and stored in the console main body 10, the opened console lid 14 can be rotated in the closing direction with an appropriate time difference.
(3) In the locked state in which the console lid 14 is closed to the console body 10, the tray member 12 can be moved forward and backward from the console body 10.
Such a link mechanism 80 is disposed on both the left and right sides in the console body 10 between the outer member 30 and the inner member 32, but only the one disposed on the right side in each drawing. Illustrated.

  The first link member 82 constituting the link mechanism 80 is a resin molded member having a substantially “I” -shaped straight shape, and one end thereof is pivotally attached to the slide piece 74 of the tray member 12 described above. The tray member 12 is rotatably connected. The first link member 82 and the tray member 12 are connected via a pin inserted through a slit 48 that extends along the guide groove 46 described above.

  The second link member 84 constituting the link mechanism 80 is a resin molded member having a substantially “<”-shaped bent shape, and one end portion of the second link member 84 is attached to the attachment piece 86 formed on the lid inner member 52 of the console lid 14. And the other end of the first link member 82 is pivotally connected to the first link member 82 and the console lid 14 so as to be rotatable. Then, the pivot point P1 where the console lid 14 and the mounting piece 86 are connected is set at a position separated from the pivot shaft 42 by the required distance H as illustrated in FIG. Further, when the console lid 14 is in the closed position, the pivot point P1 is located rearward of the pivot shaft 42 as indicated by a solid line in FIG. 7, and when the console lid 14 is in the open position. 7 is positioned forward of the pivot shaft 42 as indicated by a two-dot chain line in FIG. 7, and the pivot shaft 42 and the pivots based on the posture (closed state and open state) of the console lid 14 are arranged. According to the positional relationship with the support point P1, the above-described aspects (2) and (3) are realized.

  Further, the first link member 82 has a first contact that can contact a third contact surface 94 formed at the end of the second link member 84 on the connection portion 88 side. A surface 90 and a second contact surface 92 are formed. As a result, when the first link member 82 and the second link member 84 are rotated about the connecting portion 88, the link mechanism 80 is brought into contact with the first contact surface 90 and the third contact surface 94 so that the link mechanism 80 is substantially the same. The first posture (contracted state: solid line display state in FIG. 7) contracted acutely into a V shape, and the second contact surface 92 and the third contact surface 94 come into contact with each other to form an obtuse angle in an I shape. A link operation that bends and stretches to the second posture (elongated state: solid line display state in FIG. 8) that is extended in the vertical direction is possible. Then, the posture displacement in the contraction direction is regulated more than the first posture, and the posture displacement in the extension direction is regulated more than the second posture, and the bending between the first posture and the second posture is restricted. The deformation realizes the above-described aspect (1).

  That is, when the link operation of the first link member 82 and the second link member 84 is allowed, the forward / backward movement of the tray member 12 is allowed regardless of the rotation of the console lid 14, and the link operation is restricted. The rotation of the console lid 14 is interlocked with the advance / retreat movement of the tray member 12.

  In the state of the second posture, as illustrated in FIG. 8, the pivot point P3 in the connecting portion 88 is a line connecting the pivot point P2 and the pivot point P1 between the tray member 12 and the first link member 82. Located below L. Accordingly, when the tray member 12 is moved rearward from the state shown in FIG. 8, the link mechanism 80 is always displaced toward the first posture described above.

(Operation of Example)
Next, the operation of the console box CN of the present embodiment configured as described above will be described.

  In the console box CN of the present embodiment having the link mechanism 80 described above, the console lid 14 is held in the closed position and the tray member 12 is held in the storage position stored in the tray storage portion 38 ( 3, 4, and 7), the first link member 82 and the second link member 84 are bent, and the link mechanism 80 is in the first posture. Further, as illustrated in FIG. 7, the pivot point P1 between the first link member 82 and the mounting piece 86 is positioned rearward from the pivot shaft 42 because the console lid 14 is held in the closed position. ing.

  3 and FIG. 4, when the tray panel 72 of the tray member 12 held in the storage position is pushed rearward, the locked state of the tray member 12 with respect to the console body 10 is released. The tray member 12 can be slid forward from the console body 10 by the elastic force of the constant tension spring 76. At this time, the link mechanism 80 moves to the front side of the tray member 12 until the posture is displaced to the second posture by the rotation of the first link member 82 and the second link member 84, as illustrated by a one-dot chain line in FIG. 7. Allow sliding movement. Here, since the console lid 14 is locked and held in the closed position, the above-mentioned pivot point P1 is not displaced at all from the rear side of the pivot shaft 42. Accordingly, the tray member 12 slides to the first extending position described above when the link mechanism 80 is in the second posture. In the state where the tray member 12 has arrived at the first extension position, as illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, the article placement unit 18 is substantially completely exposed from the console lid 14, and the article placement unit 18. The article can be taken in and out.

  3 and 4, when the above-described lid release button 64 is pressed, the locked state of the tray member 12 and the locked state of the console lid 14 with respect to the console lid 14 are simultaneously released. Thus, the tray member 12 slides forward from the console body 10 when the link mechanism 80 is displaced to the second posture by the elastic force of the constant tension spring 76. On the other hand, since the elasticity of the torsion spring 60 is set to be relatively weak, the console lid 14 is held in the closed position until the link mechanism 80 assumes the second posture. Then, when the link mechanism 80 assumes the second posture illustrated by the one-dot chain line in FIG. 7, the link mechanism 80 thereafter moves toward the open position in conjunction with the forward extension of the tray member 12 under the elastic bias of the torsion spring 60. And then turn upwards.

  As a result, the link mechanism 80 is displaced forwardly from the pivot shaft 42 as the pivot point P1 moves as the console lid 14 rotates, as illustrated by the two-dot chain line in FIG. While being held in the second posture, the position is displaced forward along the sliding direction of the tray member 12. That is, since the pivot point P1 moves forward by the stroke S by the rotation of the console lid 14, the link mechanism 80 is displaced forward by the stroke S, so that the tray member 12 is moved to the second extension described above. It further slides forward to the exit position. In other words, when the console lid 14 is simultaneously opened, the tray member 12 slides to the second extended position that is further advanced by the stroke S, and is completely retracted from the upper opening 16A of the article storage unit 16. Therefore, the opening area of the upper opening 16A is largely opened, and articles can be taken into and out of the article storage section 16.

  1 and 2, that is, in a state where only the tray member 12 is extended to the first extension position, the console lid 14 can be opened independently by pressing the lid release button 64 described above. is there. At this time, since the link mechanism 80 in the second posture is displaced forward by the stroke S along with the opening displacement of the console lid 14, the tray member 12 extending to the first extension position is It slides further forward to the second extending position, and completely retracts from the upper opening 16A as before.

  On the other hand, when the tray member 12 extending to the second extending position is pushed or retracted so as to be stored in the console body 10 from the state illustrated in FIGS. 5 and 6, the console as illustrated in FIG. The lid 14 is held in the open position by the elastic bias of the torsion spring 60 described above, and the link mechanism 80 which has been in the second posture is displaced in the first posture in conjunction with the sliding movement of the tray member 12 to the rear side. To come. That is, until the link mechanism 80 is displaced from the second position to the first position, the console lid 14 remains held at the open position even if the tray member 12 moves rearward. As described above, when the link mechanism 80 is displaced to the first position, the link mechanism 80 rotates in the closing direction in conjunction with the backward movement of the tray member 12. The tray member 12 is housed in the tray housing portion 38 and locked to the console body 10, and at the same time, the console lid 14 is also locked to the closed console body 10.

  Note that, from the state illustrated in FIGS. 5 and 6, only the console lid 14 that has been stopped at the open position can be closed to the console body 10 alone. At this time, as the console lid 14 is closed, the link mechanism 80 is displaced rearward by the stroke S in the second posture, so that the tray member 12 extended to the second extension position is Then, it slides backward from the second extended position to the first extended position.

  As described above, in the console box CN of the present embodiment, the tray member 12 is moved by the link operation in the extending direction (second posture direction) or the contracting direction (first posture direction) of the first link member 82 and the second link member 84. Since the console lid 14 can be opened / closed appropriately with a time difference with respect to advance / retreat, there is an advantage that the opening / closing operation of the console lid 14 can be simplified. In other words, the console lid 14 can be opened and closed simply by moving the tray member 12 forward or backward, and the console lid can be closed in a natural posture with arms extended forward and downward, and the console lid that opens and closes. It can be avoided that 14 contacts the arm or the like. Therefore, when the console lid 14 is opened and closed, the occupant seated in the front seat is not forced to take a cramped posture of gripping the console lid 14 by raising its arm and twisting the upper body. 14 can be simplified.

  Further, since it is possible to allow only the tray member 12 to be taken in and out of the console main body 10 without opening and closing the console lid 14, it is possible to open and close the console lid 14 with respect to the article placement portion 18 of the tray member 12. Articles can be easily put in and out. That is, it is not necessary to perform a cumbersome operation for opening and closing the console lid 14 when the articles are taken in and out of the article placement portion 18 of the tray member 12. Further, the tray member 12 is slid in a horizontal posture, and when the tray member 12 is put in and out, the articles stored in the article placing portion 18 are prevented from being displaced and becoming messy.

  Further, when the console lid 14 is opened, the tray member 12 moves to a position where the tray member 12 is completely retracted from the upper opening 16A of the article storage unit 16, so that the opening area of the upper opening 16A is enlarged and the article is expanded. Articles can be easily put in and out of the storage unit 16. Moreover, since the tray member 12 slides to the front side opposite to the console lid 14 that opens to the rear side of the console box CN, the article with respect to the article placement portion 18 in a state where the console lid 14 is opened. It becomes easy to put in and out.
