Title:
SLIDE SWITCH AND SLIDER HOLDING STRUCTURE OF SLIDE SWITCH
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2013131419
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a slide switch that hardly malfunctions even if external force that an operator does not intend is applied to the slider or an operation part of an operation knob, etc.

A longitudinal slide column part 13 of an operation part 1 is fitted slidably in a longitudinal guide groove 20 of a slider 2. A rear plate 12 of the longitudinal slide column part 13 is provided with a projection 14 and a spring 15. The spring 15 energizes the operation part 1 with downward (-y directional) force, so when the slider 2 is slid in an (x) direction in a slider fitting part 3, the projection 14 is fitted into one of lock slits 31, 32, and 33 to enter a holding state (lock state). In the holding state, even if unintended (x)-directional force is applied to the slider 2, the holding state is maintained since the projection 14 is fitted in the lock slit, so that even if external force is applied to the operation part, an electric device is prevented from entering an unintended state.
