  • Publication number: 20190217746
    Abstract: In a vehicle seat, a movable frame provided at a front end portion of a stationary frame is slidable frontward and rearward, and an outer covering is provided to extend frontward from an upper side of the stationary frame and configured to wrap around a front end portion of the movable frame. Engageable members are provided to extend along the left and right end portions of the outer covering. The movable frame has grooves extending from an upper surface, through a front surface and to an undersurface thereof. The engageable members are engageable in the grooves. Each groove includes a first groove section, and a second groove section extending from the first groove section in a direction different from a direction in which the first groove section extends. Each engageable member includes a body portion extending from the outer covering and a claw portion extending from the body portion.

  • Publication number: 20190100121
    Abstract: A seat back pad 70 has a groove 73 for tucking a skin material therein, formed at borders between a central portion 71 and side portions 72. A hole (slot hole 74) is formed in a bottom of the groove 73 along the groove 73. A tuck-in wire 76 for tucking the skin material in includes a plurality of tuck-in portions 76A provided along the groove 73, and a connecting portion (detour portion 76B) detouring around the hole and connecting the tuck-in portions 76A. With this configuration, when an upper body of an occupant P subsides into a seat back S2 in a rear-end collision of a vehicle, the central portion 71, defined by the groove 73 as a border, is easily and sufficiently moved rearward relative to the left and right side portions 72. Furthermore, the tuck-in wire 76 is not exposed through the hole, and thus adhesion between the seat back pad 70 and the tuck-in wire 76 can be improved.
