Title: INCREASED FRICTION STEERING COLUMN CLAMPING SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a steering column (1) of a vehicle comprising: a supporting base (2) intended for being attached to the chassis and including two clamping walls (20); a steering member intended for being connected to a steering wheel, hingedly mounted on the supporting base and arranged between the clamping walls; a clamping mechanism for locking the column, so that each clamping wall has an inner contact area in contact with an outer contact area of the steering member; in this column, the inner contact areas (28) and/or the outer contact areas have increased roughness compared with the rest of the faces (26) that support them.
