In this section of the website you will find our range of circlips which include both internal and external options. Circlips are metal retaining rings containing a semi-flexible metal ring with open ends which can be snapped into place, in a machined groove on a shaft or other part to allow rotation but to stop lateral movement. Circlips can also be know as C-clips, Seeger rings, snap rings or jesus clips. The most common material for circlips is carbon spring steel with a phosphate and oil finish.
