Tapered Section Retaining Rings

Product Announcement from American Ring

Tapered Section Retaining Rings-Image

Tapered Section Retaining Rings are the most common type of retaining ring in use today. They are manufactured by stamping rolled steel into the finished shape, or by coiling rectangular section wire and then cutting out the taper and lug holes. The tapered section gives these rings the flexibility to be installed using a retaining ring plier. Also, the heavy cross section of these retaining rings allow them to have high thrust load capacities.
