Claim of US Patent No. 9,402,327

1. An electronic apparatus comprising:
a jack connector which has a plug insertion opening;
a connector substrate on which the jack connector is mounted; and
a chassis on which the connector substrate is fixed,
wherein the chassis has a cantilever portion extended in an inserted direction in which a plug is inserted from the plug in
opening,

wherein the cantilever portion has a hooking portion and a fixed portion on which the connector substrate is fixed,
wherein the hooking portion and the fixed portion are arranged so that the fixed portion is arranged far from an arranged
portion of the hooking portion in the inserted direction,

wherein in a case where the connector substrate is not bent, a space is formed between the connector substrate and an end
of the hooking portion, and

wherein in a case where the connector substrate is bent so as to alienate the connector substrate from the cantilever portion,
the space gradually becomes smaller and after that the end of the hooking portion comes into contact with the connector substrate.
