Retaining rings are offered in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate a broad range of shaft diameters and groove diameters.
Axially Assembled, Internal (for Housings/Bores) and External (for Shafts)
Once the retaining ring is installed, the shoulder portion of the ring extending beyond the groove provides retention and holds components and assemblies in place.

Commonly used in numerous rotational shaft applications including automotive, axles, transmissions, motors and gearboxes, radially assembled retaining rings are ideal for tight clearances and easy to install.
