It is shown that a map $f: X \rightarrow F(A, W)$ is a cofibration if its adjoint $f: X \bigwedge A \rightarrow W$ is a cofibration and $X$ and $A$ are locally equiconnected (LEC) based spaces with $A$ compact and nontrivial. Thus, the suspension map $\eta: X \rightarrow \Omega\SigmaX$ is a cofibration if $X$ is LEC. Also included is a new, simpler proof that C. W. complexes are LEC. Equivariant generalizations of these results are described.
