Full Text TECHNICAL FIELD
The present invention relates to a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle which permits a key operation for a cylinder lock to be done easily when unlocking and which does not permit any other key than a predetermined key to be used for unlocking, thereby enhancing an anti-theft function.
BACKGROUND ART
Generally, in a two-wheeled motor vehicle, a seat is provided so that it can be opened and closed, and a receptacle space is formed under the seat. In this case, the seat is provided with a hinge at a front portion thereof and a hook at a rear portion thereof, the hook being locked by means of a seat lock device provided on a vehicle body side. For unlocking the seat lock device, that is, for opening the seat, a key is inserted into a cylinder lock mounted in a rear portion of the vehicle body.
In a certain two-wheeled motor vehicle, a bracket is provided in a side face of a rear frame located at a lower position behind a seat and a cylinder lock is mounted to the bracket and is allowed to face an opening formed in a side face of a body cover. In this case, there is a disadvantage that the cylinder lock and the opening in the body cover are difficult to be aligned with each other at the time of
mounting the body cover.
As a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle wherein a cylinder lock is disposed not in a frame but in a rear fender, there if known, for example, one disclosed in
(1) Japanese Patent Laid-Open Publication No. 2001-71795
entitled "Seat Lock Structure in Two-wheeled Motor Vehicle."
(2) As a detailed structure of a seat lock device there is
known the structure shown in Fig. 9 hereof.
In the above publication (1) is disclosed a seat lock structure wherein a second cross pipe is secured to rear portions of seat rails which support a pillion seat for a fellow passenger, a lock mechanism for locking the pillion seat is attached to the cross pipe, and a cylinder lock for unlocking the lock mechanism is mounted to a rear surface of a rear fender which covers a rear wheel from above, at a position below a tail lamp.
According to such a seat lock structure, for example when a rider once gets off the vehicle sideways, takes out goods from a receptacle space under the seat and again gets on the vehicle, the rider is required to move from a side of the vehicle to the rear portion of the vehicle for unlocking the seat, then insert a key into the cylinder lock and perform an unlocking operation, thereafter the rider moves back to the side position of the vehicle. Thus, the seat unlocking operation is troublesome. Further, since the cylinder lock is positioned below the tail lamp, it is difficult to confirm a key insertion hole of the cylinder
lock.
Description will be made below as to the structure (2) above.
Figs. 9A and 9B hereof are explanatory diagrams of a conventional seat lock device. In this seat lock device, indicated at 200 in Fig. 9A, a coupling member 203 for coupling with a seat hook 202 attached to an underside of a seat (not shown) and a lock member 204 for locking the coupling member 203 to prevent rotation of the coupling member are secured to a base plate 201 rotatably through pins 205 and 206, respectively, and a tension coil spring 207 is disposed between the coupling member 203 and the lock member 204.
The coupling member 203 is provided with a first pawl portion 208 for engagement with the seat hook 202 and a sideways projecting portion 211, while the lock member 204 is provided with a second pawl portion 212 for engagement with the projecting portion 211 of the coupling member 203 and an arm portion 213 extending sideways for connection with a cylinder lock (not shown) which is for unlocking the seat lock.
From the state of Fig. 9A, if in Fig. 9B the arm portion 213 of the lock member 204 is allowed to swing in the direction of arrow, the lock member 204 turns clockwise around the pin 206 and the second pawl portion 212 of the lock member 204 is disengaged from the projecting portion 211 of the coupling member 203, so that the coupling member 203
is turned in the direction of arrow around the pin 205 with a tensile force of the tension coil spring 207 and the seat hook 202 is disengaged from the first pawl portion 208 to open the seat lock, thus permitting the seat lock to be opened.
Turning back to Fig. 9A, for example if a rod 215 is inserted from between the seat and a body cover disposed below the seat and the second pawl portion 212 of the lock member 204 is pushed thereby, the second pawl portion 212 swings in the direction of arrow as is the case with the above description given in connection with Fig. 9B and the seat lock may be opened thereby. This is undesirable from an anti-theft standpoint.
DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION
It is the first object of the present invention to provide a cylinder lock in a rear fender, thereby eliminate the need of forming an aperture in a body cover for allowing the cylinder lock to face therein, and facilitate a key operation for the cylinder lock at the time of unlocking a seat lock device.
It is the second object of the present invention to enhance an anti-theft function so that a seat lock device cannot be unlocked with any other key than a predetermined key.
According to the first aspect of the present invention there is proposed a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle, attached to a rear portion of a body of the vehicle
to lock an opening/closing type seat when closed, characterized in that an arm member is extended downward from a lock member, the lock member being provided at a rear portion of a body frame and functioning to lock a coupled state of the seat lock device with a seat hook provided on an underside of the seat, the arm member being brought into abutment operatively against an operating cam of a cylinder lock which is provided for unlocking operation in a side face of a rear fender at a position lower than a body cover, the body cover covering a rear portion of the vehicle body.
Thus, since the cylinder lock is provided in a side face of the rear fender, it is not necessary to form in the body cover any aperture for allowing the cylinder lock to face therein. In the present invention, as compared with the conventional like device wherein the cylinder lock is mounted below the tail lamp at the rear portion of the vehicle body, it is not necessary for a rider to move from a side of the vehicle body to the rear side of the vehicle body at the time of operating the cylinder lock with a key, that is, the rider can easily operate the cylinder lock with a key.
In connection with the first aspect there also is proposed a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle, wherein a shield wall for covering side and rear portions of the seat lock device is provided on the rear fender.
As a result, it is possible to prevent, for example, a rod member from unlocking the seat lock device from side and rear portions.
Further, in connection with the first aspect, there is proposed a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle therein an upper portion of the shield wall is fixed to a cross member.
By thus fixing the upper portion of the shield wall to the cross member it is possible to strengthen the shield wall and even if a rod-like member or the like is inserted into the lock device, there is no fear breakage of the shield wall.
Still further, in connection with the first aspect, there is proposed a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle wherein a shield wall for covering a rear upper portion of the seat lock device is suspended from a bottom plate of the seat.
With such a shield plate, it is possible to prevent such a mischief as inserting a rod-like member or the like into the lock device from the rear portion of the vehicle body to open the lock.
According to the second aspect of the present invention there is proposed a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle, comprising a first pawl portion for engagement with a seat hook provided on a seat side, a first swing piece having the first pawl portion and adapted to swing in locking/unlocking directions, a recess formed in the first swing piece, a second pawl portion for engagement with the recess, a second swing piece having the second pawl portion and adapted to swing, and a spring anchored to both first and second swing pieces for causing the second swing piece to
swing in a direction in which the second pawl portion comes
into engagement with the recess, characterized in that one of
two pieces which constitute the recess is extended so that
the extended portion covers an upper surface of the second
swing piece when the second swing piece is engaged with the
recess.
Thus, since the upper surface of the second swing piece is covered with the extended portion, even if an upper portion of the second swing piece is pushed with a rod-like member or the like to let the second swing piece swing in an unlocking direction, such a mischief can be prevented by the extended portion.
In connection with the second aspect there is also proposed a seat lock device in a two-wheeled motor vehicle wherein a shield wall for covering a rear upper portion of the seat lock device is suspended from a bottom plate of the

Numeral 113 denotes a rear fender-side mounting portion provided at an upper portion of the rear wall 98 for mounting the rear fender mounting arm portion 95 (see Fig. 3) suspended from the cross member 51 (see Fig. 3), numeral 114 denotes a fender-side mounting seat for mounting the rear fender mounting portions 101 (see Fig. 4), the fender-side mounting seat 114 being provided in a pair, and numeral 115 denotes a base portion of the rear fender 41 positioned below the seat lock device 50.
The operation of the seat lock device constructed as above will be described below.
Figs. 7A and 7B are operation diagrams explaining a first-half operation for unlocking the seat lock device, of which Fig. 7A is a side view illustrating a state before key operation and Fig. 7B is a side view illustrating a state after key operation.
In Fig. 7A, the arm member 55 extended from the second swing piece 75 in the seat lock device 50 is in abutment against a side face of the operating cam 54 attached to the
cylinder lock 52.
In Fig. 7B, when a key is inserted into a key hole 52a of the cylinder lock 52 and is turned clockwise, allowing the operating cam 54 to swing by an angle of 6° in the direction of arrow, the arm member 55 tilts.
Figs. 8A and 8B are operation diagrams explaining a latter-half operation for unlocking the seat lock device, of which Fig. 8A is a rear view illustrating a state before key operation and Fig. 8B is a rear view illustrating a state after key operation.
In Fig. 8A, the seat hook 57 is engaged with the first swing piece 73 and the first projecting portion 82 of the first swing piece 73 is engaged with the second pawl portion 87 of the second swing piece 75.
With tilting of the arm member 55 as explained above in connection with Fig. 7B, the second swing piece 75 connected to the arm member 55 rotates about the second pin 74 and the second pawl portion 87 swings in the direction of arrow.
Consequently, the second pawl portion 87 of the second swing piece 75 is disengaged from the first projecting portion 82 and the first swing piece 73 rotates about the first pin 72 with the tensile force of the tension coil spring 76, so that the first pawl portion 81 swings in the direction of arrow and becomes disengaged from the seat hook 57.
As a result, it becomes possible to move the seat 'nook 57 in the direction of arrow and hence possible to open the
seat.
When the seat is to be locked in a closed state by the seat lock device 50, the seat hook 57 is brought down into abutment against a side face of the second projecting portion 83 of the first swing piece 73, causing the first swing piece 73 to turn clockwise around the first pin 72. At this time, since the operating cam 54(see Fig.7B) of the cylinder lock 52 is in a state before key operation as shown in Fig. 7A, so in Fig. 8B, the second pawl portion 87 of the second swing piece 75 is close to the first projecting portion 82 with the tensile force of the tension coil spring 76, so that if the first swing piece 73 turns at a certain angle or more, the second pawl portion 87 comes into engagement with the first projecting portion 82. This is a seat locked state.
Turning back to Fig. 8A, even in the event the seat lock is about to be opened with something other than the key, for example even in the event a rod-like member 120 is inserted into the seat lock device 50 from under the seat and the second pawl portion 87 of the second swing piece 75 is about to be disengaged from the first projecting portion 82 of the first swing piece 73, since in the present invention the first swing piece 73 is formed with the second projecting portion 83 which covers the second pawl portion 87 of the second swing piece 75 from above, the insertion of the rodlike member 120 can be blocked by the second projecting portion 83, that is, it is impossible for the rod-like member
120 to push the second pawl portion 87.
In addition, plural anti-theft measures are taken for the seat lock device in the present invention.
Firstly, in Fig. 2, the vertical wall 58 is formed at the rear portion of the bottom plate 56 of the seat 26.
For example, when the rod-like member 120 is inserted through a gap between the seat 26 and the lamp cover 63 from behind the seat 26, the insertion of the rod-like member 120 can be blocked by vertical wall 58 so as not to reach the seat lock device 50.
Secondly, in Fig. 4, the side wall 97 is provided sideways of the seat lock device 50 and the rear wall 98 is provided behind the seat lock device.
For example, when the rod-like member 120 is inserted from a side of the vehicle body or from behind the vehicle body toward the seat lock device 50, the insertion of the rod-like member can be prevented by the side wall 97 and the rear wall 98.
Further, since the rear wall 98 is secured to the cross member 51 through the rear fender mounting arm portion 95 shown in Fig. 3, the rear wall 98 can be strengthened and prevented from being deformed or damaged even if pushed strongly with the rod-like member 120.
Thirdly, in Fig. 5, the seat lock device 50 is surrounded by not only the rear fender 41 but also the cross member 51.
More specifically, the upright walls 105 are provided
on both sides of the seat lock device 50, the flat portion 106 is provided above the seat lock device, and the front wall 107 (see Fig. 3) is provided in front of the seat lock device. These upright walls 105, flat portion 106 and front wall 107 are combined with the side wall 97, rear wall 98 and base portion 115 (see Fig. 6) of the rear fender 41 to surround the seat lock device 50. Thus, the seat lock device 50 is surrounded almost completely by six upper, lower, right, left, front, and rear sides.
Consequently, it is possible to completely prevent mischief to the seat lock device 50.
Although in the above embodiment the upper surface of the second swing piece is covered with the extended portion of the first swing piece, this constitutes no limitation, but a shield wall which covers the second swing piece from above may be provided on the base plate to which the first and second swing pieces are mounted.
Although in the above embodiment the seat lock device is surrounded with both rear fender and cross member, this constitutes no limitation, but the cross member may be formed in a box shape and the seat lock device may be accommodated within the cross member.
INDUSTRIAL APPLICABILITY
Since the cylinder lock for unlocking the cylinder lock device is provided in a side face of the rear fender, the cylinder lock can be easily operated with a key at the time of unlocking the seat lock device. Besides, since the upper
surface of the second swing piece is covered with an extended portion of the first swing piece, even if the upper portion of the second swing piece is pushed with a rod-like portion or the like for causing the second swing piece to swing in an unlocking direction, such a mischief can be prevented by the extended portion of the first swing piece. Thus, improvement can be attained in both operability and anti-theft performance. This is useful for such two-wheeled motor vehicles, saddle-ride type vehicles and industrial machines as require seat locking.
