  • Patent number: 10276973
    Abstract: A connector comprises a housing, a slider, a regulating portion and an operation portion. The housing has a lock portion. The slider has a release portion and a regulated portion. Under a mated state where the connector is mated with a mating connector having a mating lock portion, the lock portion locks the mating lock portion of the mating connector, and the regulating portion faces the regulated portion and regulates a rearward movement of the slider. When the operation portion is operated to be pressed inward of the connector, at least one of the regulating portion and the regulated portion is moved, and the regulating portion does not regulate the rearward movement of the slider. When the slider is moved rearward, the release portion moves the lock portion and releases the mating lock portion.
