  • Patent number: 10384624
    Abstract: Provide is a case that aims at while suppressing upsizing in a height direction to which a load is applied, restraining the application of load to articles accommodated in the accommodating chamber when an external force acts thereon. The case including an accommodating chamber for accommodating an article is provided with an upper wall on which load F acts from above, and an inner surface of the upper wall on the accommodation chamber side is formed into a concave shape. According to this, while suppressing an increase in size in the height direction of the case, it is possible to suppress the application of the load to the article accommodated in the accommodating chamber when the external force acts.

  • Patent number: 10377325
    Abstract: A slide protector slidably engaged with a slide rail together with a slide support has a harness holder holding a wire harness and a hooking section capable of hooking the slide support with the harness holder and the hooking section formed integrally. Though the wire harness causes a resistance force when the slide support slides rearward in the sliding direction and the slide protector is pulled rearward, reliability of the attachment structure of the slide protector to the slide support can be enhanced since the hooking section and the harness holder holding the wire harness are formed integrally.

  • Patent number: 10249982
    Abstract: Provided is a power supply device capable of improving workability during assembly and mounting. Accommodating a power source side connector by a cylindrical portion of a case makes a portion where the power source side connector of the harness is provided not pulled out to the outside of the case. Thus the workability at the time of assembling the power feeding device itself can be improved. Also, it is unnecessary to dispose the power source side connector where the passenger unlikely steps on, and simply mating the mating connector with the source side connector makes the workability at the time of mounting the power supply device on the vehicle improved.
