PURPOSE: To prevent U-shaped groove contact terminal parts from being folded and broken, by surrounding the U-groove press contact terminals projectingly provided on the upper surface of a connector main body from three ways by approximately U-shaped protective walls higher than the ends. CONSTITUTION: The upper surface of a connector main body 1 is formed into a step shape in the longitudinal direction and formed into an upper stage surface 4 and a lower state surface 5 between which there is a difference (a). A plurality of U-groove press contact terminals 6 for connecting electric wires are aligned and projectingly provided on the upper stage surface 4 in a line in the longitudinal direction at distances, and a plurality of U-groove press contact terminals 7, 8 are alternately aligned and projectingly provided on the lower stage surface 5 in two lines at distances. On the upper surface of the connector main body 1, protective walls 9 to 11 formed into approximately U shapes in plan view are projectingly provided on three surfaces on both ends in the width direction except for the front part of the main body 1 and on the rear end, and respective upper ends of the protective walls 9 to 11 are formed higher than the tips of the terminals 6 to 8 projecting from the upper stage surface 4 and the lower stage surface 5 of the main body 1. A plurality of notches 12a are provided on the protective wall 9 of the main body 1, so as to form comb-like wire aligning/wire holding part 12.
