GENERAL INFORMATION: SNAP RINGS AND E-CLIPS
Snap rings are circular metal retaining clips. They are required to secure parts and gears in place on parts such as shafts, pins or rods.
External type snap rings are used to retain items on shafts. Internal type snap rings secure parts within housing bores.
In some applications, in addition to securing the component(s), snap rings of varying thickness also determine end play. These are usually called selective snap rings.
Two basic types of snap rings are used: stamped and machined snap rings. Stamped snap rings (Figure 7) are manufactured with a sharp edge and a round edge.
When installing a stamped snap ring in a thrust application, install the sharp edge facing away from the part producing the thrust.
Machined snap rings can be installed in either direction, since both faces have sharp edges.
E-clips are used in some applications. Remove E-clips with a flat blade screwdriver by prying between the shaft and E-clip.
To install an E-clip, center it over the shaft groove and push or tap it into place.
