AbstractA motion transmitting remote control assembly (10) of the type for transmitting forces along a curved path by a motion transmitting core element (30) including a support fitting (24) having first and second ends and an opening (14) extending therethrough defining a first axis for guiding a core element (30) through a substantially U-shaped seat (16) in a support structure (18). A core element (30) is movably supported by the support fitting (24) for transmitting motion between the ends thereof. The assembly is characterized by including a projection finger (38) spaced laterally from the first axis defined by the opening (14) for gripping engagement with the support structure (18) and preventing the end support fitting (24) from moving laterally out of the U-shaped seat (16). Axial deflection of the finger (38) is limited by a stop member (47).
