Description

  The present invention relates to an automobile spoiler.

  It has been well known that a spoiler is attached to a bumper mounted on a vehicle body for the purpose of reducing lift generated when an automobile is driven at high speed (see Patent Document 1). FIG. 8 is a perspective view showing a conventional spoiler before being attached to a bumper. The spoiler 3A shown here is made of a hard material such as hard resin or metal, and a large number of mounting holes 14A are formed in the upper part thereof. In order to attach the spoiler 3A to the bumper 2A attached to the vehicle body 1A of the automobile, the spoiler 3A is brought under the bumper 2A, and each attachment hole 14A formed in the spoiler 3A is, as shown in FIG. The clip 15A is inserted into the mounting holes 9A and 14A that match each mounting hole 9A formed in the bumper 2A, and the spoiler 3A is fixed to the bumper 2A by the clip 15A.

  As described above, in order to attach the conventional spoiler 3A to the bumper 2A, it is necessary to fit a large number of clips 15A into the attachment holes 9A and 14A, respectively, so that the installation work must be complicated. .

  Moreover, since the spoiler 3A is made of a hard material, as shown by a two-dot chain line in FIG. 9, when the ground height of the spoiler 3A is lowered, obstacles such as a shoulder that is higher than the general plane of the road. When the lower part of the spoiler 3A hits the object 10A, a large stress is generated in the spoiler 3A and the bumper 2A, which may be damaged. In order to improve the aerodynamic characteristics of the spoiler 3A, it is desirable that the width HA in the height direction of the spoiler 3A is increased so that the ground height of the spoiler 3A is lowered as shown by a two-dot chain line in FIG. However, if this is done, the spoiler 3A and the bumper 2A may be damaged as described above. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 9, the width HB in the height direction of the spoiler 3A has to be reduced. .

  In addition, since the conventional spoiler 3A is made of a hard material, it is difficult to divert a certain type of automobile spoiler to another type of automobile, and there is a disadvantage that it is inferior in versatility.

JP 2005-67308 A

  An object of the present invention is to provide an automobile spoiler that eliminates the above-mentioned conventional drawbacks.

  An automobile spoiler according to the present invention is integrally fixed to a spoiler body made of a soft elastic material and an upper portion of the spoiler body, and is fitted into a plurality of attachment holes formed in a bumper attached to a vehicle body. A plurality of attachment portions, and the attachment portions are made of a material harder than the spoiler body.

  At this time, a lip that is in close contact with the bumper may be formed at the upper edge of the spoiler body.

  Further, in the spoiler of each of the above automobiles, a reinforcing insert can be embedded in the spoiler body.

  According to the present invention, a spoiler can be easily attached to a bumper without using a clip.

  Moreover, since the spoiler body is made of a soft elastic material, even if the spoiler body hits an obstacle, the spoiler is elastically deformed. Therefore, no great stress is generated in the spoiler and the bumper, and the spoiler and the bumper are not damaged. For this reason, the ground height of a spoiler can be made low and the aerodynamic characteristic by a spoiler can be improved.

  Furthermore, since the main body of the spoiler according to the present invention is made of a soft elastic material, the spoiler main body can be easily elastically deformed according to the form of the automobile on which the spoiler is mounted. For this reason, the spoiler can be mounted on various types of automobiles.

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

  FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing a state in which a spoiler 3 is mounted on a front bumper 2 attached to a front portion of a vehicle body 1 of an automobile, and FIG. 2 is an enlarged sectional view taken along line II-II in FIG. 3 is a perspective view showing a state before the spoiler 3 shown in FIG. 1 is attached to the bumper 2, and FIG. 4 is a partially enlarged view of FIG.

  As shown in FIGS. 1 to 4, the spoiler 3 of the automobile according to the present embodiment is integrated with a spoiler body 4 extending in the vehicle width direction W of the vehicle body 1 and an upper portion of the spoiler body 4 when the spoiler 3 is attached to the bumper 2. And a plurality of mounting portions 5 fixed to each other. The plurality of attachment portions 5 are configured as protrusions that protrude upward from the upper portion of the spoiler body 4.

  The spoiler body 4 is made of a soft elastic material, for example, an elastomer such as vulcanized rubber, and each mounting portion 5 is made of a material harder than the spoiler body 4, for example, a hard resin such as polypropylene, or a metal such as aluminum. ing.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 2, the mounting portion 5 of this example includes a base portion 6 and a pair of locking portions 7 formed integrally with the base portion 6. It has a stepped claw 8. On the other hand, as shown in FIGS. 2 and 4, a plurality of attachment holes 9 are formed in the lower portion of the bumper 2 at positions corresponding to the attachment portions 5 of the spoiler 3.

  In order to attach the above-described spoiler 3 to the bumper 2 that is already fixed to the vehicle body 1, as shown by an arrow A in FIG. 3, the spoiler body 4 is elastically deformed according to the form of the lower portion of the bumper 2, The upper part of the spoiler body 4 is brought below the bumper 2, and then the attachment parts 5 fixed to the upper part of the spoiler body 4 are pushed into the attachment holes 9 formed at the lower part of the bumper 2 from below. At this time, the pair of locking portions 7 of each mounting portion 5 is inserted into each mounting hole 9 while being elastically deformed in a direction approaching each other by an external force received from the edge of the mounting hole 9, as shown in FIG. Further, the claw 8 of each locking portion 7 engages with the edge portion of each mounting hole 9. At this time, the pair of locking portions 7 are elastically restored to the original form. In this way, the spoiler 3 is attached to the bumper 2 by engaging the claw 8 of each attachment portion 5 with the edge portion of each attachment hole 9.

  As described above, in the spoiler 3 of this example, a plurality of attachment portions 5 are integrally fixed to the spoiler body 4, and each of the attachment portions 5 is formed on the bumper 2 attached to the vehicle body 1. The spoiler 3 is mounted on the bumper 2 by being fitted into the mounting holes 9 respectively. For this reason, it is not necessary to attach a spoiler to a bumper using many clips like the conventional spoiler. The spoiler 3 can be easily attached to the bumper 2 without using a tool or the like.

  Further, since the spoiler body 4 is made of a soft elastic material, even if the spoiler body 4 hits an obstacle (not shown) and receives an external force indicated by an arrow F in FIG. By simply elastically deforming as shown by a two-dot chain line in FIG. 2, excessive stress is not generated in the spoiler body 4 and the bumper 2, and they can be prevented from being damaged. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 2, the height H of the spoiler body 4 in the height direction can be made larger than before, and the ground height of the spoiler 3 can be lowered. Thereby, the aerodynamic characteristic by the spoiler 3 can be improved.

  Further, since the spoiler body 4 is made of a soft elastic material, an automobile having a bumper other than the form shown in FIG. 3 is also elastically deformed in accordance with the form of the bumper. Can be attached to the car. Further, if necessary, the spoiler 3 can be mounted on a wide range of types of vehicles by cutting the spoiler body 4 according to the form of the bumper or adding an attachment hole to the bumper.

  As shown in FIG. 2, in the spoiler 3 of this example, a lip 11 that is in close contact with the lower surface of the bumper 2 is formed at the upper edge of the spoiler body 4. For this reason, even when the thickness T of the bumper 2 is slightly different, the spoiler 3 can be attached to the bumper 2 of each thickness without rattling. That is, as shown in FIG. 2, even when the thickness T of the bumper 2 is relatively thin, the lip 11 is in close contact with the lower surface of the bumper 2, so that the spoiler 3 can be attached to the bumper 2 without rattling. On the contrary, as shown in FIG. 5, even when the thickness T of the bumper 2 is relatively thick, the lip 11 is elastically deformed in accordance with this and adheres closely to the lower surface of the bumper 2, so that the spoiler 3 is not hindered. It can be attached to the bumper 2.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 2, in the spoiler 3 of this example, a reinforcing insert 12 made of a hard resin plate or a metal plate is embedded in the spoiler body 4. As a result, moderate rigidity can be imparted to the spoiler 3, so that it is possible to prevent the spoiler 3 from being excessively elastically deformed by wind pressure or the like when the automobile is running, thereby reducing the aerodynamic characteristics.

  Moreover, the spoiler 3 of this example can be easily manufactured by injection molding, for example. That is, the spoiler 3 in which each mounting portion 5 is fixed to the spoiler body 4 by setting each mounting portion 5 obtained by molding in advance into a molding die and then injecting a molten material for the spoiler body 4 into the molding die. Can be manufactured.

  Further, as shown in FIG. 6, a spoiler body 4 made of a soft elastic material and an attachment equivalent portion 13 made of a hard material integral with the spoiler body 4 are formed by an extrusion molding machine. By cutting the unnecessary portion indicated by the symbol B, the same spoiler as the spoiler 3 shown in FIG. 4 can be manufactured. A portion other than the unnecessary portion B of the attachment equivalent portion 13 is left as the attachment portion 5. In that case, the position of the attachment part 5 of the completed spoiler 3 can be freely set by appropriately selecting a part to cut the attachment equivalent part 13.

  Also, as shown in FIG. 7, when the mounting section 5 has a circular cross-sectional shape and the mounting hole 9 formed in the bumper 2 is also formed in a circular shape, the mounting hole 5 can be easily mounted by post-processing on the bumper 2 by a drill or the like. 9 can be formed, the spoiler 3 can be easily attached to an automobile already used.

  The example of the spoiler 3 attached to the bumper 2 provided at the front portion of the vehicle body 1 has been described above, but the present invention can also be applied to a spoiler attached to the bumper provided at the rear portion of the vehicle body.
