Internal Tooth-Wide Rim Retainers
Wide Rim Shaft Retainers securely hold unthreaded shafts or rods while distributing holding force over wide area to protect soft or fragile bearing surfaces. Also effectively span oversize or elongated holes.
When pushed down over unthreaded studs,Wide Rim Retainers set up a strong strut action that requires a pull-off force 10 to 20 times greater than the force required to seat them. Typical stud or shaft materials are steel, plastic, zinc diecast and brass.
Wide Rim Shaft Retainers are widely used on toys, lawn and garden equipment, automotive interiors and exteriors, motors, hand tools, etc.
