High quality Stainless Steel Circlips offered by us is a simple clip that is made from spring tensioned grade stainless steel. It is used both internally and externally to retain an item on a shaft, or in a hole, from moving laterally along its length. Both the internal and external Circlips have lugs on the ends which have small holes for the special pliers to fit into. They are a metal ring with open ends placed onto a machined groove to allow rotation but prevent a Lateral Movement. Stainless steel Circlips are generally used to secure a pinned connection.
