  • Patent number: 11024476
    Abstract: A push-button switch may include a housing, an operation unit, a lock lever unit, a transmission mechanism, a movement regulating portion, a contact mechanism, and a first biasing portion. The movement regulating portion enables movement of a lever body to a second position when an end of the operation unit on a housing portion side is positioned at an initial position, and disables movement of the lever body to the second position when the end of the operation unit on the housing portion side is positioned closer to an operation surface than the initial position in a movable direction. The first biasing portion biases the plunger from an operating position toward a return position.

  • Patent number: 11011325
    Abstract: A push button switch may include a housing, an operation unit, and, a lock lever unit. A lever body of the lock lever unit may have a locking portion capable of locking one end of a long jig in an extending direction. The housing may have a fulcrum projection that contacts an intermediate portion of the jig having the one end locked to a locking portion when the lever body is moved using the jig, and serves as a rotation fulcrum of the jig.

  • Patent number: 10998150
    Abstract: A push-button switch may include a housing, a plunger, an operation unit, a transmission mechanism, a contact mechanism, and a biasing portion. The plunger may have a first plunger that is disposed in series with the first plunger. The first plunger and the second plunger may be movable independently of each other. The contact mechanism may be configured to be opened/closed by movement of the second plunger.

  • Patent number: 10910174
    Abstract: A push-button switch may include a housing, an operation unit, a lock lever unit, and a biasing portion. A lever support portion may be connected to the operation unit so as to be movable together with the operation unit when a lever body is positioned at a second position. The housing may have a deformation portion that, when the operation unit is pulled in an opening direction when the lever body is positioned at the second position, deforms the lever body so as to be capable of releasing the pressing to the lever body by a holding unit.

  • Patent number: 9819121
    Abstract: A screwless terminal block allows easy insertion and removal of a wire. A housing (2) includes a fixture insertion opening (23) through which a rod-like fixture (6) is inserted to come in contact with a contact pressure spring (4) and deform the spring (4) away from a wire (5). When the fixture (6) is inserted through the fixture insertion opening (23), an acute angle of 45° or less is formed by an axis of the fixture (6) and a straight line connecting a contact point A between the housing (2) and a part of the fixture (6) adjacent to the wire insertion opening (24) and a contact point B between the housing (2) and a part of the fixture (6) adjacent to the spring (4) at a cross-section taken along a plane including the axis of the fixture (6) and parallel to a pressing direction of the spring (4).
