Product Overview

Circlips, also known as retaining rings, are typically used to maintain the axial location of bearings and seals within housings.

Available in metric (DIN471/DIN472) and imperial sizing circlips are typically produced in high performance spring steel, although other materials, including stainless steel and phosphor-bronze are available upon request.

External circlips fit around the outside diameter of a shaft, and internal circlips are installed into a housing bore recess.
