A connector includes terminals and shield members respectively supported in a housing, and protection caps. The terminal is in the form of a flat plate extending in an assembling direction D with a mating connector and has a contact point with a mating terminal of the mating connector on a plate surface of the terminal. The shield member surrounds the terminal to face the terminal in a direction orthogonal to the assembling direction D. The protection cap includes a front covering portion for covering a front end part in the assembling direction D of the terminal and locking claws locked to the shield member, and is fixed to the shield member by locking of the locking claws. The connector 10 is coupled to the mating connector with the protection caps fixed to the shield members and front end parts of the terminals covered by the front covering portions.

An object is to suppress concentration of stress on electrical wires when the electrical wires are bent in the vicinity of a bracket. A bracket-equipped conductive path includes a conductive path main body that is constituted by a plurality of coated wires, a protector that surrounds the conductive path main body, and a bracket that is made of metal and includes a base portion that is embedded in the protector in such a manner that detachment of the base portion from the protector is restricted and an attachment portion that extends from the base portion. The base portion has a flat plate shape and is arranged to face the conductive path main body in a direction that is substantially parallel to a thickness direction of the base portion.
