Made from spring steel, Circlips are shaped like a ring with open ends and can be used in fastening. Applied in driver shafts, electrical motors, different types of equipment and machinery, assemblies and many more, Circlips are metal rings sprung into a slot or groove in a bar to hold something in place. There are two types of circlip; internal and external.
Acting as a rigid shoulder within a bore, Internal Circlips are closed down to pass a bore and released to spring down outwards into a groove. External Circlips are expanded to pass over a shaft and then released to spring back into the groove. They provide a rigid, yet tough load bearing shoulder on a shaft.
Bearing Shop UK offers a variety of internal and external Circlips in different sizes. Need something else? Check our website for more products like V Belts and V Pulleys.
