  • Patent number: 11608886
    Abstract: A selector unit includes a protruding portion and a dial member. The dial member is configured to be displaced between an initial position and a depressed position along an axial direction of the protruding portion, and to be rotationally operable in a circumferential direction when depressed to the depressed position. An offset angle at a rearward side when the dial member is at the initial position is greater than the offset angle at a forward side when the dial member is at the depressed position. The offset angle means an angle between an extended line obtained by extending an upper face of the protruding portion outwards in a radial direction and a tangential line in contact with both the upper face of the protruding portion and an upper face of the dial member, in a section including a rotation axis of the dial member.

  • Patent number: 11512773
    Abstract: A selector unit includes a panel, and a dial member that protrudes in a first direction from an opening of the panel. A surface of the panel includes a concave surface having a depth that increases toward the opening. The dial member has an operation portion gripped by a user, and a base shaft portion that extends from the operation portion through the opening of the panel. At least a part of an outer circumferential surface of the base shaft portion is an inclined surface that is inclined radially outward as being away from the panel, and the inclined surface is opposed to the surface of the panel in the first direction. The distance from the surface of the panel to the inclined surface of the dial member in the first direction continuously increases, as a radial distance from the opening to the inclined surface increases.
