Here, “made of conductor” in the present invention includes not only the case where the decorative portion 130 is formed of a conductive material (for example, a metal material), but also a non-conductive material (for example, a resin material). In this case, after the base is formed, the surface of the base is subjected to conductive plating or the like.
Further, the cover 121 may be entirely configured as a decorative portion 130 or may have a decorative portion 130 in part.
The cover 121 is fixed to the base 110 so as to cover the substrate 152 from the front.
The base 110 is fixed to the door body 40 using the first fixing member 36. Further, the cover 121 is fixed to the base 110 using a second fixing member 119.
The “first fixing member 36” is for fixing the door body 40 and the base 110. In addition, as the first fixing member 36, a member that can fix the door body 40 and the base 110 in pressure contact can be used. For example, by using a screw, a pin, a clip, or the like as the first fixing member 36, the door body 40 can be pressed and fixed to the base 110.
Specifically, for example, the base 110 is provided with a predetermined number of base fixing bosses 115 protruding rearward from the back surface of the base 110 and having a female screw formed on the inner peripheral surface. Further, a base fixing hole, which is a through hole, is provided at a position corresponding to the base fixing boss 115 in the door body 40. Then, a screw as the first fixing member 36 is fastened to the base fixing boss 115 while being inserted into the base fixing hole.

Further, for example, a door main body side pressure contact portion 208 of the ground member 200 described later is located between the base fixing boss 115 provided in the base 110 and a base fixing hole provided in the corresponding door main body 40. By fixing the base 110 to the door main body 40 in a state, the base-side ground member fixing boss 116 can be used to press-contact the door main body-side pressure contact portion 208 of the ground member 200 to the frame portion 39 of the door main body 40. . Of the base fixing holes provided in the door body 40, the base fixing hole corresponding to the base-side earth member fixing boss 116 can be used as the door body-side earth member fixing hole 50.
In this case, if the vicinity of the door main body side grounding member fixing hole 50 to which the door main body side press contact portion 208 is pressed is a part of the frame portion 39, the door main body side press contact portion 208 can be easily attached to the frame portion 39. The door main body side press contact portion 208 and the frame portion 39 of the door main body 40 can be electrically connected.
Further, for example, a locking portion for locking a ground member 200 described later can be provided at a predetermined position of the base 110. Further, the locking portion can be formed in a shape protruding toward the rear of the base 110. Further, when a locking portion provided on the base 110 and a locked portion 212 provided on the ground member 200 described later are engaged, the ground member 200 is locked at a predetermined position of the base 110. A stop can be formed.
The “second fixing member 119” is for fixing the cover 121 and the base 110. Further, as the second fixing member 119, a member capable of pressing and fixing the cover 121 and the base 110 can be used. For example, by using a screw, a pin, a clip, or the like as the second fixing member 119, the cover 121 can be fixed in pressure contact with the base 110.
Specifically, for example, the cover 121 is provided with a predetermined number of cover fixing bosses 122 protruding rearward from the back surface of the cover 121 and having a female screw formed on the inner peripheral surface. Further, a cover fixing hole, which is a through hole, is provided at a position corresponding to the cover fixing boss 122 in the base 110.

By fixing the cover 121 to the base 110, the cover-side grounding member fixing boss 129 can be configured to press the cover-side pressure-contacting part 210 of the grounding member 200 against the decorative part 130 of the cover 121. Of the cover fixing holes provided in the base 110, a cover fixing hole corresponding to the cover-side earth member fixing boss 129 can be used as the base-side earth member fixing hole 113.
In this case, if the cover-side ground member fixing boss 129 to which the cover-side pressure contact portion 210 is pressed is a part of the decorative portion 130, the cover-side pressure contact portion 210 can be easily pressed to the decorative portion 130. Thus, the cover-side press-contact portion 210 and the decorative portion 130 of the cover 121 can be made conductive.
In addition, other members used for indirectly attaching the substrate 152 to the base 110 may be in front of the substrate 152 as long as the substrate 152 can be provided on the front side of the base 110. It may be behind 152.
Further, as a method of directly attaching the substrate 152 to the base 110, specifically, for example, a predetermined number of bosses for attaching the substrate 152 having a female screw formed on the inner peripheral surface are provided on the front surface of the base 110. Then, for example, a through hole for attaching the substrate 152 is provided at a position on the substrate 152 corresponding to the boss for attaching the substrate 152. Then, the screw for attaching the substrate 152 is fastened to the boss for attaching the substrate 152 provided on the base 110 while being inserted into the through hole for attaching the substrate 152 provided on the substrate 152. Thus, the substrate 152 can be attached to the front surface of the base 110. This also allows the substrate 152 to be provided on the front side of the base 110.
Further, as a method for indirectly attaching the substrate 152 via another member, for example, an intermediate portion 158 as another member can be provided.
Specifically, for example, a predetermined number of bosses for mounting the substrate 152 having a female screw formed on the inner peripheral surface are provided on the front surface of the intermediate portion 158. Then, a through hole for mounting the substrate 152 is provided at a position corresponding to the boss for mounting the substrate 152 on the substrate 152. Then, a screw for attaching the substrate 152 is inserted into a through hole for attaching the substrate 152 provided in the substrate 152, and is fastened to a boss for attaching the substrate 152 provided in the intermediate portion 158. Thereby, the substrate 152 can be attached to the front surface of the intermediate portion 158.
Further, for example, the intermediate portion 158 with the substrate 152 attached to the front surface may be directly attached to the base 110, and the substrate 152 may be provided on the front side of the base 110, or the intermediate portion with the substrate 152 attached thereto. The substrate 152 may be provided on the front side of the base 110 by indirectly attaching the 158 to the base 110 via another member.
For example, when the intermediate portion 158 having the substrate 152 attached to the front surface is directly attached to the front surface of the base 110, the intermediate portion 158, which is another member, is positioned behind the substrate 152.
For example, the cover 121 can be used as another member for indirectly attaching the intermediate portion 158 having the substrate 152 attached to the front surface to the base 110. Specifically, the cover 121 is provided with a predetermined number of intermediate mounting bosses 124 protruding rearward from the back surface of the cover 121 and having a female screw formed on the inner peripheral surface. Further, a through hole for attaching the intermediate part 158 is provided at a position corresponding to the intermediate part attaching boss 124 in the intermediate part 158. Then, the intermediate portion 158 mounting screw is fastened to the intermediate portion mounting boss 124 while being inserted through the through hole for mounting the intermediate portion 158. Thereby, the intermediate portion 158 having the substrate 152 attached to the front surface can be fixed to the cover 121.
  In this case, for example, a cover fixing boss insertion portion for inserting the cover fixing boss 122 is provided in the substrate 152 and the intermediate portion 158. Specifically, a through hole or a notch can be provided in the substrate 152 and the intermediate portion 158, which can be used as a cover fixing boss insertion portion. Further, the cover fixing boss insertion portion is provided at a position corresponding to the cover fixing boss 122 provided on the cover 121. Further, when the cover 121 is attached to the base 110, the cover fixing boss 122 provided on the cover 121 is inserted into the cover fixing boss insertion portion formed on the substrate 152 and the intermediate portion 158, and the cover fixing on the front surface of the base 110 is performed. The tip of the cover fixing boss 122 reaches the position of the hole. Further, for example, when the cover 121 is fixed to the base 110, it is formed in a shape that can cover the substrate 152 from the front.
  When formed as described above, the substrate 152 is attached to the front surface of the intermediate portion 158. Further, the substrate 152 and the intermediate portion 158 are fixed to the back of a cover 121 described later. Further, the cover 121 is fixed to the base 110 behind the substrate 152 and the intermediate portion 158. As a result, the substrate 152 and the intermediate portion 158 are positioned between the cover 121 and the base 110. That is, the substrate 152 can be indirectly attached to the base 110 using the intermediate portion 158 and the cover 121 and provided on the front side of the base 110. Thus, when the intermediate portion 158 having the substrate 152 attached to the front surface is attached to the base 110 via the cover 121, the cover 121, which is another member, is positioned in front of the substrate 152.
Further, for example, as a method of indirectly attaching the substrate 152 via another member, it is possible to provide only the cover 121 as the other member without using the intermediate portion 158. In this case, specifically, the cover 121 is provided with a predetermined number of bosses for mounting the substrate 152 that protrude rearward from the back surface of the cover 121 and have female screws formed on the inner peripheral surface. Further, a through hole for attaching the substrate 152 is provided at a position on the substrate 152 corresponding to the boss for attaching the substrate 152. Then, the screw for attaching the substrate 152 is fastened to the boss for attaching the substrate 152 while being inserted into the through hole for attaching the substrate 152. Accordingly, the substrate 152 can be fixed to the cover 121.
In this case, for example, as in the case of having the intermediate portion 158 described above, the cover 121 is provided with a cover fixing boss 122, and a cover fixing hole is provided at a position corresponding to the cover fixing boss 122 of the base 110. . Further, for example, a cover fixing boss insertion portion for inserting the cover fixing boss 122 is provided in the substrate 152.
