Being the industry leader, Bolton Engineering Products Ltd promises to supply and provide the best quality engineering components in the country. We are providing a huge choice of new and replacement bearings, associated parts, and a wide range of tools to assist you in getting the work done. In keeping with our mission to serve the country with the best quality precision-engineered components, we maintain a really comprehensive inventory of circlips.

Circlips, also known as snap rings or C-clips, is a form of retention ring that is made of semi-pliable metal and has holes on both ends. When the clips are installed, they are distorted elastically and are withdrawn by inserting a pair of circlip pliers into tiny holes at either end of the ring and stretching it open to release it. External circlips are inserted axially over the outside of a shaft in order to give an interference fit onto a machined groove in the shaft. The circlip allows the shaft to rotate, but it prevents it from moving in any direction.
