Title: Connector

Abstract: A simplified fitting detecting connector is provided. A female housing (20)is provided with a chamber (21) which is open to the anterior and in whichcoiled springs and a slider (41) are housed. The slider (41) is capable ofmoving in an anterior-posterior direction within the chamber (21). Whenthe female housing (20) is fitted with a male housing (10), the slider(41) is pushed towards the posterior by the male housing (10), the coiledsprings compress, and the slider (41) moves towards the posterior. If thefitting operation is halted part-way through, the spring force of thecoiled springs is released, separating the two housings (10 and 20). Alocking arm (46) is formed in a unified manner on an upper face of theslider (41). When the two housings (10 and 20) have been correctly fittedtogether, they are maintained in this state by this locking arm (46).
