  • Patent number: 11130452
    Abstract: A projecting part is provided at the tip of a flange. With a trim body being tilted down on one of the vehicle front and rear sides, by a portion around one end of the flange being firstly inserted into a groove provided on the vehicle body panel side, the flange and the groove as a whole function as means for determining an initial mount position of the trim body relative to the vehicle body panel. The projecting part is positioned around the one end of the flange firstly inserted into the groove and enters inside the groove preceding the portion around the one end of the flange when an insert position misalignment of the flange relative to the groove occurs. Thus, the projecting part functions as means for correcting the insert position misalignment of the flange.
