  • Patent number: 7625225
    Abstract: A lever is attached to a connector housing in a rotatable manner. This lever includes a pair of arm plates having rotation supporting points at one ends and a connection bar linking the other ends of the arm plates. This lever has a substantially U-like shape. According to this lever, when one ends of the pair of arm plates are opened to the outer sides, the rotation supporting point of the lever is attached, in a rotatable manner, to a rotation supporting pivot of the outer face of the connector housing. By this structure, the lever is rotated for operation to realize a cam action to assist the connectors to be fitted to each other and to be disengaged from one another. According to this lever-type connector, the lever is attached to the connector housing, and subsequently the connection between the arm plates at a position closer to the rotation supporting point of the lever than to the connection bar is provided as a link member linking the arm plates.
