Title:
CLICKING MECHANISM FOR ELECTRONIC COMPONENT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2013/065447
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A clicking mechanism is configured from: a spring (50) formed from a wire or a plate disposed on a rotation plate (40) for integrally rotating with the rotation control shaft of an electronic component; and concaves and convexes (25) formed on the inner circumferential surface of a housing (22) for storing the rotation plate (40) and arranged in the circumferential direction of the housing (22). The spring (50) is formed in the shape of a U and a protruding part (50a) is integrally formed outward on both straight parts of U. The protruding parts (50a) protrude from the outer circumference of the rotation plate (40) and come into elastic contact with the concaves and convexes (25). It is possible to obtain a clicking mechanism for an electronic component which exhibits excellent durability by only using a few components and with which it is possible to obtain a distinct clicking feeling.
