  • Patent number: 5375046
    Abstract: An apparatus for holding a rubber or elastic cover covering a bulb exchange opening of a lamp assembly of a vehicle, comprises a holder defining the bulb exchange opening and having a plurality of outer engagement claws formed at predetermined intervals in the circumferential direction of the holder, and a cap retaining the cover together with the holder. The cap has a plurality of hooks engaging the claws when the cap is rotated for engaging the holder. At least one cap abutment is provided on the holder at a circumferential position of the holder between adjacent two claws, which provides interference in the direction of engagement between the cap and the cap abutment when the cap is mounted on the holder, so that a sensible physical response is given to an operator for confirming the correct right engagement of the cover, the cap and the holder, to reliably enhance the holding function.
