  Introduction   spec.   application  
Circular external Rings, Push-On Rings are a self-locking retaining ring that applies frictional force against a shaft or housing to hold a mechanical component in place. Commonly found in external or internal self-locking designs, Push-On Rings do not require grooves or additional machining to be secured into place.
A retaining ring is a fastener that holds components or assemblies onto a shaft or in a housing/bore when installed - typically in a groove - for one time use only. Once installed, the exposed portion acts as a shoulder which retains the specific component or assembly. Circlips are a type of retaining ring.
Circular push-on retaining rings may be installed in applications where there is no groove.
