A clock spring (also referred to as a flat torsion spring) is designed to produce a torsional force/circular movement. In contrast to a tightly coiled power spring, the clock spring has open coils that, when mounted correctly, reduces friction to zero. However, torque capacity is reduced as a result. Our standard range is made from rounded edge stainless steel, which affords a better fatigue life.

Clock springs are most commonly used in steering mechanisms, allowing the wheel to turn while still being connected to various electrical systems. Most devices that require a smooth retraction system will operate with the help of a clock spring. Mechanical timers, landyards and wind-up toys are just a few examples of products that function using clock springs.
