External Circlips, (sometimes called C-Clips or Seeger Rings) have a variety of applications, but are commonly used as retaining components. The clip is installed onto a shaft to prevent lateral movement of any parts connected to the shaft, or of the shaft itself. When connected to a shaft, an External Circlip can also be inserted into a cut or groove to create a lightweight and compact fastening. External Circlips are also commonly used alongside Bearings, and can be used as spacers or retaining rings for Gears.
External Circlips are stretched around a shaft using specialist Circlip tooling, and due to their slight flexibility, can accommodate shafts slightly larger than their own internal diameter. A tight fit is recommended to ensure that components are securely retained.
