A handle assembly for a motor vehicle

Research output: Patent

Abstract

A handle assembly (10) for a motor vehicle having a handle (11) secured to a part of a body construction (9a, 9b) of the motor vehicle by means of two U-shaped brackets (14, 15) designed to collapse in a predetermined manner when an impact load is applied to the handle (11). A rigid member (31a, 31b) is interposed between each of the brackets (14, 15) and the handle (11) so as to distribute any load transferred from the handle (11) to the brackets (14, 15) thereby preventing localised distortion of each of the brackets (14, 15) in the region where they are connected to the handle (11).
