【発明の詳細な説明】 DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

【0001】 [0001]

【産業上の利用分野】本発明は、自動車用ドアミラーにおけるステーの水抜き構造に関する。 The present invention relates, on water draining structure of the stay in the automotive door mirror.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】従来、自動車用ドアミラーは、ミラー本体のケーシングであるバイザーと、バイザーを回転可能に保持するステーとから構成され、ステーは、一般に、 Conventionally, automobile door mirror is constituted by a visor which is a casing of the mirror body, a stay for rotatably holding the visor, stay, in general,
車体に固定するための金属製の取付板と、バイザーを回転可能に支持する支点軸を有する金属製の支持基板と、 A metal attachment plate for fixing to the vehicle body, and a metal supporting board having a fulcrum shaft for rotatably supporting the visor,
取付板及び支持基板のカバーであるステー本体とから構成されている。 Is composed of a stay main body is mounting plate and the cover of the support substrate. ステー本体は、取付板を車体の外側から覆う大略三角形の側壁と、支持基板を下から覆って取付板に対してほぼ直角に保持する底壁とから構成され、側壁及び底壁は、自動車のデザインに合わせて合成樹脂で一体的に成形されている。 Stay body has a side wall of generally triangular cover the mounting plate from the outside of the vehicle body, is composed of a substantially perpendicular holds to the bottom wall relative to the mounting plate over the supporting substrate from the bottom, side walls and bottom wall of the motor vehicle It is integrally formed by synthetic resin in accordance with the design.

【0003】この構成では、底壁が支持基板を下から受けるように形成されているので、その上に水が溜まるおそれがあるが、そうなると支持基板の支点軸上に構成されるバイザー回転機構の構成部品が錆びるおそれがある。 [0003] In this arrangement, since the bottom wall is formed to receive the supporting substrate from the bottom, there is a risk that over water accumulates in them, Sonaruto visor rotation mechanism configured on the fulcrum shaft of the support substrate there is a possibility that the components are rust. そこで、水が溜まるのを避けるために、底壁には通常は水抜き穴が形成されている。 Therefore, in order to avoid water from accumulating, the bottom wall normally are formed drain holes.

【0004】 [0004]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】ところが、上述の構成では、水抜き穴を形成しても、最後には底壁上に水滴が残ったり、底壁上に水が薄く張ったりして、水が十分に抜けない場合があった。 [SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION However, in the configuration described above, it is formed drain hole, finally or remaining water droplets on the bottom wall, and or stretched thin water on the bottom wall, water there have been cases where there are not enough spots. したがって、本発明の解決すべき技術的課題は、底壁上の水を水抜き穴に導いて、底壁上に水が残りにくくすることである。 Thus, solving the technical problem to be of the present invention, led to the water on the bottom wall to the drain hole, it is that water is less likely to remain on the bottom wall.

【0005】 [0005]

【課題を解決するための手段】上述の技術的課題を解決するため、本発明に係る自動車のドアミラー用ステーの水抜き構造は以下のように構成されている。 To solve the technical problems described above SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The water draining structure of the stay for an automobile door mirror according to the present invention is constructed as follows. すなわち、 That is,
この構造では、ステーの底壁を貫通する水抜き穴が形成され、さらに、底壁上に、その水抜き穴に連通するとともに水抜き穴に向かって幅の狭くなる溝が形成されている。 In this structure, it is formed drain holes through the bottom wall of the stay, further on the bottom wall, narrower groove width toward the drain hole is formed with communicating with the drain hole.

【0006】 [0006]

【作用・効果】上記構成においては、底壁上に水が溜まると、その水は溝を通って水抜き穴に流れ込み、さらに水抜き穴から外へ流れ出ることになる。 In [Action and Effect] above structure, when water collects in the bottom wall, the water flows into the drain hole through the groove, so that the flows further out of the drain hole. この場合、溝の中の水は、表面張力(毛細管現象)により溝の中を自然に幅の狭い方へ移動して、水抜き穴の中へ入っていく。 In this case, the water in the groove, to move toward a narrow natural width in the groove by the surface tension (capillarity), entering into the drain hole. また、溝以外の部分に残った水滴も、自動車の振動などで溝の中へ落ちれば水抜き穴の方へ導かれていく。 Also, water droplets remaining on the portion other than the groove, will be directed towards the drain hole when Ochire in vibration of the motor vehicle into the groove. したがって、底壁上には水が残りにくくなる。 Therefore, hardly remains water on the bottom wall.

【0007】 [0007]

【実施例】以下に、図1及び図2に示した本発明の一実施例に係る自動車用ドアミラーのステーの水抜き構造について詳細に説明する。 EXAMPLES Hereinafter, the water draining structure of the stay of a motor vehicle door mirror according to an embodiment of the present invention will be described in detail shown in FIGS. 図1は、この水抜き構造が適用されたステー本体の斜視図、図2は図1のII−II線断面図である。 Figure 1 is a perspective view of the stay body the water draining structure has been applied, FIG. 2 is a sectional view taken along line II-II of Figure 1.

【0008】図示するように、このステー本体1は、車体に固定するための金属製の取付板(不図示)を外側から覆う三角形の側壁2と、バイザーを回転可能に支持する支点軸を有する金属製の支持基板(不図示)を下から覆って取付板に対してほぼ直角に保持する底壁3とが一体的に成形されたものである。 [0008] As illustrated, the stay main body 1 has a side wall 2 of the triangle covering metal mounting plate for fixing to a vehicle body (not shown) from the outside, a fulcrum shaft for rotatably supporting the visor a bottom wall 3 to retain substantially right angle is one that was molded integrally with the mounting plate over the metal support substrate (not shown) from below. 底壁3には、支持基板をボルトで取り付けるためのねじ穴が形成されたボス4が形成されている。 The bottom wall 3, a boss 4 which screw holes for attaching the supporting substrate with bolts are formed is formed.

【0009】このステー本体1の底壁3には、水抜き穴5が形成されている。 [0009] The bottom wall 3 of the stay main body 1, drain hole 5 is formed. また、底壁3の表面上には、水抜き穴5と連通する三本の溝6が形成されている。 Further, on the surface of the bottom wall 3, a groove 6 of the three communicating with drain hole 5 is formed. 各溝6 Each groove 6
は、水抜き穴5に向かって幅が細くなる形状になっていて、底壁3の上に残った水滴が水抜き穴5の中に流れやすくなっている。 A width toward the drain hole 5 have a shape which becomes thinner, water droplets remaining on the bottom wall 3 is likely to flow into the drain hole 5.

【0010】本実施例では、底壁3上に溜まった水が水抜き穴5から抜けていくとき、水は溝6を通って水抜き穴5に入って行く。 [0010] In this embodiment, when the water accumulated on the bottom wall 3 escapes from the drain hole 5, the water going into the drain hole 5 through the grooves 6. この場合、水は溝6の中を、表面張力(毛細管現象)により幅の広い方から狭い方へ自然に移動することになる。 In this case, the water through the grooves 6, will move naturally by surface tension (capillary action) towards a narrower from the side wide. したがって、溝6を形成しない場合よりも、底壁3上の水が水抜き穴5の中へに流れ込みやすくなる。 Therefore, as compared with the case of not forming a groove 6, the water on the bottom wall 3 is likely to flow into the into the drain hole 5. このため、底壁3上には水が残りにくくなるから、支持基板の支点軸上で構成されるバイザー回転機構の構成部品が錆びるなどの問題が生じるのを防止できる。 Therefore, on the bottom wall 3 from hardly remain water, it is possible to prevent the problems such as rust are components constructed visor rotation mechanism on the pivot axis of the support substrate occurs.

【0011】また、底壁3上における溝6の形成されていない部分に残った水滴も、自動車の振動などで溝6の中に落ちると水抜き穴5の方へ移動していくので、全体として水切れが良くなる。 [0011] Also, water droplets remaining on the portions not formed with the groove 6 on the bottom wall 3, since vibration or the like of an automobile moves the fall in the groove 6 toward the drain hole 5, the entire drainage is improved as. なお、本実施例では溝6を三本形成しているが、溝6の本数は必要に応じて適宜定めればよい。 Although this embodiment has a groove 6 three, the number of grooves 6 may be appropriately determined according to need.
