(54)VEHICLE SEAT CONTROL ASSEMBLY


(57) Disclosed is a valve-control assembly (108) for a vehicle seat (100) that includes a pneumatic control valve (112) configured to control at least one seat adjustment function. A control switch is configured to operate the pneumatic control valve, and a cover structure (110) is arranged to one or more of at least partly cover the pneumatic control valve or at least partly surround the control switch. The control switch includes a first catch (166), and the cover structure includes a second catch (208). The first catch (166) is configured to engage the second catch (208), when the control switch is actuated by a predetermined amount in a first direction (B), to secure the control switch against movement in a second direction (A) and thereby secure the pneumatic control valve in an actuated configuration.
