Constant Section Retaining Rings:

For Installation in Housings and Shafts

axial installation of retaining rings

Installed Along the Centerpoint of an Axis (HORIZONTALLY)

Constant section retaining rings feature a uniform, constant section. This means that the material used to make the ring is the same width at any point along the circumference of the ring. These cost less than tapered and spiral retaining rings and provide only three point contact with the groove as shown below.
