Retaining Rings

A retaining or snap ring is a form of spring used principally as a fastener. The ring is elastically deformed, put in place, and allowed to snap back toward its unstressed position into a groove or recess. Retaining rings may be used externally to provide a shoulder that retains a wheel or a bearing race on a shaft, or it may be used internally to provide a construction that confines a bearing race in the bore of a machine frame. There are numerous styles and types of retaining rings, including: Tapered section, spiral, constant section, truarc style rings, push on, radially installed, round wire, square wire, lock rings, circlips, heavy duty, light duty, inch or metric. Please contact a Bearing Service representative for your retaining ring needs.
