Circlips & Retainers

Retaining rings are fasteners that holds components or assemblies onto a shaft or in a housing/bore when installed in a groove. Once installed, the exposed portion acts as a shoulder which retains the specific component or assembly.

Circlips are a type of retaining ring. Self-locking retaining rings may be installed in applications where there is no groove.
