Metric Radially Assembled
Metric radial retaining rings are radially installed into machined grooves on shafts. They don’t have lugs or lug holes and do not extend as far around the circumference of the grooves as their axial counterparts. Consequently, they can be installed quickly using Rotor Clip applicators and dispensers.
DE – External E Ring
Perhaps the most popular and widely used radial retaining ring is the “E” (so named because it is shaped like the letter “E”.) Three prongs make contact with the bottom of the groove and provide a shoulder for effective retention of assemblies.
DC – External Crescent Ring
Ideal for low clearance applications where radial installation is preferred.
