Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To reliably support a slider to a housing, and reduce dispersion of a flexible base board to the the possible minimum level when the slider and the flexible base board are inserted into a mating connector by arranging a support member to regulate a movement except for the inserting direction of the slider to the mating connector, in the housing.
SOLUTION: A housing 10 having terminals 15 of plural rows is arranged from respective wall surfaces 11 of upper and lower housings 18 and 19. Both ends of a flexible base board 20 where plural electrically conductive passages are formed on a surface are connected to the terminals 15 of the housing 10. A slier 30 to contact the electrically conductive passages with contact rows by being inserted between the contact rows of a mating connector, is inserted between both ends connected to the terminals 15 of the flexible base board 20. A pair of support members 40 are arranged so as to sandwich the housing 10 from the vertical direction, and a movement in the direction except for the inserting direction of the slider 30 to the mating connector is restricted.
