External E Retaining Rings

External E Retaining Ring

Also known as:  

E Clips, E Rings, External Retaining Rings, Shaft Rings

External E Retaining Rings, which resemble the letter "E," are perhaps the most popular retaining ring in use. They are installed radially by snapping them into a machined groove from the side. Three prongs (both sides and center) contact the bottom of the groove and act as a shoulder to effectively retain assemblies. E Retaining Rings have a larger profile than C Retaining Rings and while they are more economical than axially assembled external retaining rings, the allowable thrust loading is lower. Ring size refers to shaft diameter, which is larger than the ring's free diameter. See our E Retaining Ring Specifications reference charts.
