Title: Car inside handle unit structure

Abstract: Boss axes are provided to a pair of supporting walls, which are opposed to each other, on a base to project therefrom. Flat surfaces of the boss axes are tilted relative to a center line of the groove in a latching position such that a releasing direction of a handle in a releasing position is positioned on an opposite side to an operating portion positioned in the latching position. Accordingly, overlapping lengths between circular arc surfaces of the boss axes in the unlatching position and the partial inner peripheral surface of the bearing hole can be increased. Therefore, a surface pressure applied to the boss axes of the base can be reduced in the unlatching position and thus the handle supporting strength can be improved.
