Title: Electrical connection box

Abstract: An electrical connection box which includes a main unit, having a mounting surface thereon, and a circuit unit having a bottom surface complementary to the mounting surface. The circuit unit is mounted on the main unit with the bottom surface facing the mounting surface. A holder is provided on a side surface next to the mounting surface and is attached by a plurality of attachment sections. There is a stop member on the mounting surface spaced apart from and adjacent the holder, forming an insertion space therebetween. This permits the wire harness to extend through the insertion space to the exterior of the unit. It prevents the harness from entering upon the mounting surface and being trapped there. It also makes it easier to draw the wire harness out of the connection box. In a preferred form of the Invention, there is a retainer on the holder (preferably arcuate) which is spaced apart from the side surface and provides additional space for maneuvering the wire harness. This facilitates both insertion and assembly, and also minimizes breakage of or damage to the wire harness.
