External Grip Retaining Rings

The external grip retaining ring is ideal for when your shaft or tube does not have any grooves on it. Grip Retaining Rings offer fantastic grip strength. When applied to your application, the ring holds against axial displacement from both directions by friction.

See below for our entire list of external grip retaining ring dimensions and configuration drawings.  If you do not see a ring that meets your specs, you can custom-design your own external grip retaining ring right on our site!
