Title: Arrangement of pressure contact terminals for electrical junction box

Abstract: In one arrangement of press contact terminals, each press contact terminal (1) includes an electric contact part (2), a bent part (4), and a press contact part (3) for being connected with an electric wire. The electric contact parts (2) are arranged in line, the bent parts (4) are bent alternately forward and backward in perpendicular to the line for arranging the press contact parts (1) alternately in different directions. Each press contact terminal (1) has an identical shape. In another arrangement, press contact terminals (17), (18) include shorter bent parts (19) and longer bent parts (18) respectively. The electric contact parts (26) are arranged in line. The bent parts (19), (20) are bent in one direction perpendicular to the line, and alternately arranged. In the other arrangement, neighboring press contact parts (2) of the press contact terminals (1) overlap each other in a direction perpendicular to a line in which the press contact terminals (1) are arranged.
