Title: Crimp connector with uniform bending die

Abstract: The present invention aims to provide a crimp connector wherein a crimp contact inserted in a connector housing 11 can surely be fixed to the proper position and thereby contact reliability can be enhanced in the case of being connected with a coupling connector. According to the crimp connector 10 of the present invention, since a protrusion 14 formed on the crimp contact 13 is bent after having inserted the crimp contact into a contact slot 12, the crimp contact can be surely fixed to the proper position. Therefore, not only can contact reliability be enhanced in the case of being connected with a coupling connector, but also a misoperation can be excluded during crimp-connecting an electric wire W with a crimp punch. Moreover, since a receiving stand which is an integral part of a connector housing can be utilized during bending a protrusion, a shape of the bent protrusion may be uniform, holding force of the crimp contact may be increased, and any chance of a fracture by unusual deformation can be eliminated.
