Patent Number: 6,305,748

Title: Seat recliner

Abstract: A seat recliner includes a base, a bushing fixed to the base, and a rotatable camshaft one end of which is supported by the bushing. The other end of the camshaft is supported by a fixed bracket that is formed with internal teeth and secured to the base. A moveable bracket having external teeth is pivotally disposed on the camshaft between the base and the fixed bracket. The camshaft connects, in eccentric relation, the fixed bracket and the moveable bracket. Two wedges and a spring biasing the wedges in opposed circumferential directions of the camshaft cooperate to reduce a clearance between the internal teeth and the external teeth when the internal teeth and the external teeth are in the intermeshing position. A support is disposed on the bushing and holds the wedges in a proper position on the camshaft.
