Claim of US Patent No. 9,832,893

1. An electronic apparatus comprising:
a case in which an electronic substrate having a connector is stored;
an aperture formed in a side surface of the case, the connector being accessible through the aperture;
a fixture by which the case is fixed to a mounting surface, the fixture projecting outward from the side surface of the case
and the fixture extending substantially in a vertical direction when the case is fixed to the mounting surface;

a first roof that extends over and covers an area above the aperture so as to receive water drops flowing down along the side
surface of the case to thereby prevent the water drops from reaching the aperture, the first roof projecting outward from
the side surface of the case; and

a first reinforcement that connects a portion of the fixture to the side surface of the case to reinforce the fixture, the
portion of the fixture including an end portion of the fixture that extends in the vertical direction, wherein

the first roof and the first reinforcement are a single piece of material that includes a wall projecting outward from the
side surface, the wall having a first edge fixed to the side surface and a second edge fixed to the end portion of the fixture.
