"E" Bowed External Retaining Ring/"E" Bowed External Snap Ring
Like all E-Style retaining rings, these fit directly into the shaft groove from the side. These rings bow to provide spring-like retention, so you can take up any end play and tighten loose assemblies. Ideal for replacing machined shoulders, washer and cotter pin assemblies, and screw and nut assemblies.

retaining ring External Grip Retaining Ring/External Grip Snap Ring
This retaining ring is designed for use on ungrooved shafts, bosses, tubes and studs. This ring exerts a frictional hold against axial displacement from either direction. Advantages of this series over other self-locking fasteners are greater gripping strength, resistance to relative rotation between the ring and the retained parts, wider application acceptance, adjustable in either axial direction, and reusable while not marring the shaft surface during assembly or disassembly.
