Title: CLAMPING DEVICE OF AN ADJUSTABLE STEERING COLUMN FOR MOTOR VEHICLES
Abstract:
The invention relates to a clamping device of an adjustable steering column for motor vehicles, in which a support (4) securely connected to the vehicle chassis is connected to two clamping jaws (2, 3) containing the steering column, between which an axially and/or vertically adjustable casing tube (1) of the steering column for receiving a steering spindle (5) can be securely clamped, comprising a clamping bolt (6) connecting the two clamping jaws (2, 3) which interacts with an application means (7) arranged on at least one of the two clamping jaws (2, 3), in such a way that the two clamping jaws (2, 3) securely clamp the casing tube (1) during a rotation of the clamping bolt (6) in the application direction about the bolt axis (19), and the clamping jaws (2, 3) release the casing tube (1) for steering column adjustment during a rotation of the clamping bolt (6) counter to the application direction, and comprising an actuating lever (10) secured on one end (13) of the clamping bolt (6) for rotating the clamping bolt (6), wherein according to the invention, the clamping device is improved to achieve a small installation space without projections, in that the actuating lever (10) is welded to the clamping bolt (6).
