Title:
BALL LOCK CONNECTOR WITH ERRONEOUS SEPARATION PREVENTION MECHANISM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/186657
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
This connector having a lock mechanism includes a connector 10 and a counter-connector 20. The connector body 11 of the connector 10 has an annular groove 113. An inner sleeve 17 is disposed on the outer peripheral surface of the connector body 11, and an outer sleeve 13 is provided outside the inner sleeve 17, each of the inner sleeve 17 and the outer sleeve 13 being disposed so as to be movable in an axial direction. A retaining pin 15 which protrudes from the inner peripheral surface of the outer sleeve 13 is provided near the front end of the outer sleeve 13. The tubular member 21 of the counter-connector 20 has formed therein a ball containing hole 22, an inlet groove 26, and a circumferential groove 28. During the insertion of the connector body 11 into the tubular member 21, an engagement ball 23 contained in the ball containing hole 22 engages with the annular groove 113, the retaining pin 15 engages with the inlet groove 26, and the connectors are joined together. When the outer sleeve 13 is rotated relative to the tubular member 21, the retaining pin 15 engages with the circumferential groove 28 to restrict the axial movement of the outer sleeve 13 and the connector body 11.
