Retaining Rings

Retaining rings are similar to locking rings. They are a small (and often forgotten about) metal component used in a long list of different industries for various reasons. But despite their size, they are incredibly important and a vital piece of manufacturing. They serve many purposes, including:

  • Helping the assembly be as cost-effective as possible
  • Splitting tolerances
  • Absorbing vibrations

Retaining rings are used to hold together other metal components either inside a bore or onto a shaft. As mentioned, they can be used for a wide variety of applications, both commercial and domestic, so if you need to buy in bulk, we give you the option to do just that. They are used as another form of fastener that is used in a wide variety of different industries, including:

  • Automotive
  • Air conditioning
  • Heating
  • Cycling
  • And many more

Regarding the cycling industry, you can expect to find locking rings on a bicycle’s track up and bottom bracket.
