Circlips & Retaining Rings


Circlip and Retaining Rings are fasteners that are designed to hold components either onto a shaft (External working) or into a groove (Internal working).

We stock an extensive range of standard External and Internal Circlips, conforming to DIN471 and DIN472 standards respectively. Both are available in either Imperial or Metric sizes, and in both Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel from stock.

In addition, we also stock a wide selection of DIN1460, heavy duty External circlips which have a greater thickness to offer increased strength.

We also have an extensive range of Wire Rings and E clips, all of which are available on request.

If you need a range of Circlips, why not buy one of our pre-packed box sets – available in both Metric, Imperial, Internal and External Sizes?
