Steering apparatus



A steering apparatus includes a gear lock mechanism (28) that fastens a first side plate (22) to a second side plate (24) by a fastening member (26). In a lock operation, a main body of the fastening member (26) of a fastening mechanism presses a second tooth row forming member (30) toward the first side plate (22), and a guided projection (46) of the fastening member (26) rotates slightly in the range of play in a lock direction (Z1). The fastening member (26) slightly rotates the second tooth row forming member (30) in the lock direction (Z1) via a restricting portion (49b). During the slight rotation, a second tooth row (72) of the second tooth row forming member (30) is aligned with and meshes with a first tooth row (71) of the first side plate (22).
