Title: Tilt steering apparatus for vehicle

Abstract: The present invention relates, in general, to a tilt steering apparatus for a vehicle, and more specifically, to a tilt steering apparatus for a vehicle, capable of adjusting the angle of a steering column by engaging a movable gear with a fixed gear or disengaging the movable gear from the fixed gear, using a lock slider that does a rectilinear motion by an operation lever. If the lock slider is separated from the operation lever, even when the operation lever rotates, the lock slider does a rectilinear motion only. Hence, the lock slider and the movable gear can always make the line contact with each other. Through this line contact, the supporting rigidity and the abrasion resistance of components can be improved.
