A semi-circular stamping made from spring steel. The two ends are set further apart than both internal and external rings. The two ends have flared "prongs" which are substantially wider than the other parts of the ring. A center prong extends from the inside perimeter of the ring, halfway between the two ends. The three prongs, when radially installed, make contact with the bottom of the groove.
Designed for vertical installation into machined grooves on shafts of varying diameter. E Rings require a deeper groove, but provide exceptional thrust loadings when compared to fasteners of the same size and weight.
