Title: VEHICLE SEAT SUBSTRUCTURE WITH AN ACCIDENT-INDUCED ADJUSTMENT DEVICE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a vehicle seat substructure with an accident-induced adjustment device, comprising a pair of seat rails having a seat top rail, which is arranged displaceably in relation to a seat bottom rail, and a seat structure which is arranged pivotably on the seat top rail via a fitting element. In order to provide a vehicle seat substructure which reliably permits the vehicle seat to be fixed along the pair of seat rails in the event of an accident and at the same time in a simple manner prevents lowering of the vehicle seat due to forces caused by the accident, wherein the construction should be simple to mount and cost-effective to produce and at the same time has little susceptibility to failure and can also be installed completely below any vehicle seat, it is provided that the fitting element is designed and is arranged on the seat top rail and on the seat structure in such a manner that, in the event of an accident, a fixing element arranged on the fitting element passes into a locking position locking the seat top rail to the seat bottom rail.
