Retaining rings (also known as Circlips) clamp onto difficult-to-attach round shafts and bores to hold them in the proper axial position. Retaining rings are typically used to hold components on a shaft or bore in place. The design of most shafts or bores makes them difficult to attach to with other methods. A retaining ring clamps around them and creates a shoulder that keeps the part in place. Hardware Everywhere offers hundreds of retaining rings to meet any application requirements.
