Circlips, also known as retaining rings or snap rings, are essential fasteners used to secure components onto shafts or inside bores. These versatile devices come in various forms, such as internal circlips (for use inside bores) and external circlips (for use on shafts), and they play a crucial role in preventing axial movement of parts while allowing for easy assembly and disassembly.


Circlips operate by exerting radial pressure against the shaft or bore, ensuring a secure fit of the component in place. They are typically installed in machined grooves and can be easily inserted or removed using specialized tools. Circlips provide a cost-effective and efficient solution for retaining components in applications where space is limited or where traditional fastening methods are impractical.

Types of Circlips

  • External Circlips: These circlips fit around the circumference of a shaft and are used to secure components in place.
  • Internal Circlips: These circlips are installed inside a bore and exert outward pressure to retain components within the bore.


Circlips find widespread use across various industries and applications, including:

  • Automotive: Used in engines, transmissions, and suspension systems.
  • Aerospace: Employed in aircraft engines, landing gear, and hydraulic systems.
  • Machinery: Utilized in manufacturing equipment, agricultural machinery, and industrial machinery.
  • Consumer Goods: Found in household appliances, power tools, and gardening equipment.

Material and Standardization

Circlips are typically made from materials such as carbon steel, stainless steel, or spring steel, chosen for their strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. They are manufactured to meet industry standards such as DIN 471 (external circlips) and DIN 472 (internal circlips), ensuring uniformity and compatibility across different applications.


Circlips are essential components in mechanical assemblies, providing a reliable and efficient method for retaining parts in place. Whether in automotive, aerospace, machinery, or consumer goods, circlips play a vital role in ensuring the integrity and functionality of various systems.
