  • Patent number: 6783388
    Abstract: A connector has two housings (10, 30). When the two housings (10, 30) properly connected, movable detectors (25) are at standby positions and do not interfere with an edge of a mount hole (H). Thus, the two housings (10, 30) can be mounted into the mount hole (H). On the other hand, with the two housings (10, 30) partly connected, the movable detectors (25) are displaced to interfering positions and interfere with the edge of the mount hole (H). Thus a partly connected state of the two housings (10, 30) can be detected.

  • Patent number: 6656037
    Abstract: A connector (A) has first and second housings (10, 20). A lever (30) on the first housing (10) is pivotal from a standby position to a connection position for connecting the housings (10, 20). Fixed interfering ribs (16) are formed on the outer surface of a first housing (10), and movable interfering portions (35) are formed on the lever (30). Both interfering portions (16, 35) can be located in an opening area of a mount hole (H) of a panel (P) when the lever (30) is at the connection position. Thus, connector (A) can be fit into the mount hole (H). Either the movable interfering portions (35) or the fixed interfering ribs (16) bulge out of the opening area of the mount hole (H) when the lever (30) is at the standby position to interfere with an edge of the mount hole (H). Thus, the connector (A) cannot be mounted on the panel (P).

  • Patent number: 6648659
    Abstract: A lever-type connector (A) has male housing (10) with a receptacle (13) and a female housing (20) that is insertable into the receptacle (13). The lever (30) has inclined guides (36) that contact an edge of the mount hole (H) and guide the connector (A) smoothly to a proper position with respect to the mount hole (H). A rear surface (20R) of a female housing (20) is before the guide (36) when the female housing (20) is fit into the receptacle (13) and with a lever (30) at a standby position. Thus, fingers that push the rear surface (20R) of the female housing (20) do not touch the guides (36) when the female housing (20) is fitted into the receptacle (13).

  • Patent number: 6186814
    Abstract: A watertight connector is provided with an inertial locking mechanism, housings of which can be connected while making an operator feel and notice the completion of a connecting operation. The inertial locking mechanism 17 has resistance arms 22 and contact ribs 15 and is provided between male and female housings 11 and 20. A front annular projection 28A of a waterproof ring 27 mounted on the female housing 11 is brought into contact with the leading end of a receptacle 12 of a male housing 20 at a timing when the resistance arms 22 and the contact ribs 15 are brought into contact with each other during a connecting operation of the housings 11, 20. Thus, a peak P3 of a connection resistance value of the waterproof ring 27 and a peak P4 of a connection resistance value of the inertial locking mechanism 17 are synchronized to generate a large connection resistance, and a large inertial force can be obtained when this large connection resistance disappears.

  • Patent number: 6146215
    Abstract: Electrically conductive sheet metal is bent to form a terminal fitting 1. A pair of stabilizers or fins 6 protrude, and almost the entire face of the side faces of the stabilizers 6 is formed by a drawing process, the circumference edges thus being rounded, and forming bent areas 6B and 6C. As a result, even if the terminal fitting 1 is pulled out of a terminal housing chamber, the wall faces of the terminal housing chamber are not damaged by sharp edges, as is the case with a flat prior art stabilizer. Several embodiments are disclosed.
