Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6132250.
A connector is provided to prevent gelatinous seal members from being adhered to terminal fittings and improve the insertion operability of the terminal fittings. The connector includes a housing 11 with a rear surface that is held watertight since clearances between a cover 23 and the housing 11 and between the cover 23 and wires 15 are sealed by gelatinous seal members 40. Thus, female terminal fittings 14 are not brought into contact with the gelatinous seal members 40 while being inserted. Therefore, there is no likelihood that the gelatinous seal members 40 are adhered to the female terminal fittings 40 and that the viscosity resistance thereof acts on the female terminal fittings 14.
