Spiral Retaining Ring Benefits

Both Spirolox and Smalley retaining rings are easy to install and remove, and offer a no-gap 360° retaining surface. They are circular grain, have no burrs and are created with a uniform cross-section, so they do not interfere with mating components or inhibit assembly processes. Spirolox and Smalley (spiral) retaining rings are manufactured by flat wire coiling. They are also interchangeable with any of the snap rings Arcon Ring offers.

Our spiral retaining rings are most commonly used in industrial, medical, oil and gas, aerospace, and military related industries. Our spiral retaining rings (Smalley and Spirolox) are ideal for use in actuator valves, air nozzles, pneumatic clutches, gear assembly, hip replacements and much more.
