  • Publication number: 20200361404
    Abstract: A wire harness fixing structure includes a plate-like member including a first layer and a second layer softer than the first layer, an electrical wire disposed along the plate-like member, and a fixing member attached to the electrical wire to fix the electrical wire to the plate-like member. The fixing member includes: a through locking piece formed to be able to pass through the first layer and locked to the first layer while passing through the first layer, a regulation piece provided with a space between the regulation piece and the through locking piece to stop the through locking piece from passing through a surface of the plate-like member, and a column connecting the through locking piece and the regulation piece.

  • Publication number: 20200006885
    Abstract: An object is to provide a technique by which a space in a vehicle in which a wire harness including a plurality of splice circuits is arranged can be reduced and good manufacturability at the time of manufacture can be achieved. A stacked connector is formed by joining a plurality of split connectors to each other. The split connectors each include a split connector housing provided with a plurality of terminal receiving chambers and a plurality of terminal-equipped electric wires that each include a terminal received in the terminal receiving chamber and an electric wire to which the terminal is connected. At least one of the split connector housings is provided with a locking portion having a protruding shape that protrudes outward to be capable of locking the terminal-equipped electric wire received in the split connector housing of a joining counterpart.
