  • Patent number: 9979123
    Abstract: An engagement member mounted to a first housing with a fitting detection member located at a complete engagement position is located at a correct position with a terminal correctly housed in the first housing and is located at an incorrect position with the terminal incorrectly housed in the first housing. The engagement member located at the correct position does not interfere with the fitting detection member and allows a movement of the fitting detection member from the complete engagement position to a temporary engagement position. The engagement member located at the incorrect position interferes with the fitting detection member and prevents the movement of the fitting detection member from the complete engagement position to the temporary engagement position.

  • Patent number: 9972939
    Abstract: A second locked part engaged with a second locking part releases a contact between detection protrustion and the second locking part located at a temporary engagement position at which the contact between the detection protrusion and the second locking part prevents a movement of a fitting detection member in a first direction and allows the fitting detection member to move in the first direction. A deflection regulator of the fitting detection member located at a complete engagement position at which a first locked part is engaged with a first locking part regulates a deflection amount of a fitting lock arm within a range in which an engagement between the second locking part and the second locked part is unreleasable while an engagement between the first locking part and the first locked part is releasable.
