On the other hand, the prior art connector has the drawback that an assembly worker may forget to attach the terminal locking block f, which is completely separate from the connector housing a.

In this condition, the provisional engagement projections 13 of the terminal locking block B are fitted in the provisional engagement grooves 6 of the connector housing A so that the terminal locking block B is at a raised position at the rear of the connector housing A (FIG. In this provisionally engaged condition, the stopper 11 stays out of passages through which the terminal lugs C are inserted into the terminal accommodating chambers, allowing the terminal lugs C to be pushed into the terminal accommodating chambers 3 and held by the resilient engagement pieces 5 (FIG. The engagement of the terminal lugs can be seen from above through the open upper portion of the terminal accommodating chambers.

Next, the terminal locking block B is pushed down to shift the provisional engagement projections 13 from the provisional engagement grooves 6 into the guide grooves 8. When the terminal lugs C are to be removed, the terminal locking block B' is returned to the provisional engagement condition and then the resilient engagement pieces 5 are pried up by a jig T to disengage the terminal lug C. 5 and 6, the engagement projections 13' of the terminal locking block B" are made engageable with and disengageable from provisional engagement grooves 6' and full engagement grooves 12', that are formed in two tiers in the side walls 1 of the connector housing A".
