The sliding groove 221 is formed in a front-rear direction that is a direction intersecting with the direction (vertical direction) in which the clip 300 is inserted into the fastening hole of the panel, and is formed so that the right or left side is opened.

A protrusion 210 is disposed between the latching jaws 220 on both sides. The projecting portion 210 and the engaging jaw 220 are disposed so as to be spaced apart from each other in the left-right direction.

Further, the bracket 200 is formed with a rib 230 connecting the rear end of the protrusion 210 with the rear end of the locking protrusion 220 and the rear end of the bottom surface. The rib 230 closes the rear of the sliding groove 221. The rib 230 is disposed at the rear end of the bracket 200. The rigidity of the bracket 200 is improved by the ribs 230. The rib 230 may also serve as a stopper for preventing the clip 300 from being excessively slid when the clip 300 is assembled. The ribs 230 are inserted into the fastening holes of the panel 300 while being disposed behind the clip 300.

The clip 300 is installed in the bracket 200 and serves to fix the trim to the panel.

The clip 300 includes a panel fastening part 310 to be inserted into the fastening hole of the panel and a fastening protrusion part 320 formed at the lower part of the panel fastening part 310 and hooked on the fastening protrusion 220.

The panel fastening part 310 is formed to be elastically deformable so that the interval between both sides becomes narrow or wider.

The panel fastening part 310 is formed so that the width of the panel is gradually increased toward the bottom, and a panel fastening part engaged with the panel is formed at a lower part. The panel latching part is formed so as to protrude leftward or rightward. Therefore, the panel fastening portion 310 is formed in a triangular shape when viewed from the front. The panel fastening portions 310 are disposed so as to be spaced apart from each other in front and rear.

The panel fastening portions 310 formed at the front and rear sides are connected by the connecting portion 340. The connection portion 340 connects the upper portion of the panel fastening portion 310 disposed on the front side and the upper portion of the panel fastening portion 310 disposed on the rear side.

The engaging protrusion 320 is formed so as to protrude leftward or rightward. The latching protrusion 320 is disposed in the front-rear direction to connect the lower portion of the panel fastening portion 310 disposed at the front side and the lower portion of the panel fastening portion 310 disposed at the rear portion. The latching protrusion 320 is spaced apart from the panel latching portion in the vertical direction. The panel is disposed in a spaced space between the latching protrusion 320 and the panel engaging portion. The engaging protrusions 320 are formed on both sides of the clip 300, respectively. As shown in FIG. 3, the latching protrusion 320 protrudes leftward or rightward from the panel latching portion of the panel fastening portion 310.

In this embodiment, the clip 300 is slid in a direction crossing the direction in which the clip 300 is inserted into the fastening hole of the panel, and the clip 300 is mounted on the bracket 200. More specifically, the clip 300 is inserted by inserting the latching protrusion 320 into the sliding groove 221.

Further, the clip 300 may be formed with a resiliently deformable latching piece 330.

The engaging piece 330 is inserted into the engaging piece inserting portion 211 and the engaging piece 330 is caught by the thick portion. Therefore, when the clip 300 is assembled to the bracket 200, the clip 300 is prevented from moving in the back and forth direction with respect to the bracket 200.

The latching part 330 is disposed between the panel fastening part 310 disposed at the front side and the panel fastening part 310 disposed at the rear side. The lower end of the latching piece 330 is connected to the latching protrusion 320.

The latching pieces 330 are formed on both sides of the clip 300, respectively. The engaging pieces 330 are formed to be inclined so that the distance between the engaging pieces 330 on both sides becomes narrower toward the upper side. Further, the latching pieces 330 are formed so that the left and right thickness become thicker toward the upper side.

Further, a seating groove 331 in which the thick portion of the bracket 200 is seated is formed in the latching piece 330. The seating groove 331 is formed so as to pass through in the front-rear direction, and is formed so that the upper portion is opened and the left or right is opened.

Hereinafter, a process of assembling the clip 300 of the present embodiment having the above-described configuration to the bracket 200 will be described.

The clip 300 is slid rearward with respect to the bracket 200 so that the latching protrusion 320 is inserted into the sliding groove 221.

When the clip 300 is slid in this way, the latching piece 330 contacts the slant surface 212 to improve the entryability of the clip 300.

When the engaging piece 330 is inserted into the engaging piece inserting portion 211, the assembling is completed.

When the assembly is completed, the latching protrusion 320 is caught by the latching jaw 220, so that the clip 300 is not moved vertically with respect to the bracket 200. Therefore, when the clip 300 is pulled out in the vertical direction from the fastening hole of the panel for maintenance work or the like, the clip 300 is not separated from the bracket 200.

In addition, when the assembly is completed, the latching pieces 330 are hooked on the thick portions of the protrusions 210 at the top and front and back. This prevents the clip 300 from being moved back and forth and upward with respect to the bracket 200 so that the locking protrusion 320 does not come out of the sliding groove 221 due to vibration or the like.

When the assembly is completed through this process, as shown in FIG. 5, the projecting portions 210 are disposed between both sides of the panel fastening portion 310. When the clip 300 is inserted into the fastening hole of the panel (dotted line) in this state, the clip 300 and the protrusion 210 are inserted into the fastening holes of the panel.

It will be understood by those skilled in the art that various modifications and variations can be made in the present invention without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as defined in the following claims .
