Retaining Rings

The Hoopster(R) retaining rings from Smalley Steel Ring Company (Lake Zurich, IL) fit into shallower groves than regular snap rings or retaining rings. The rings’ low-profile, precision circularity, and small radial size allow it to be an unobtrusive component in an assembly. They are suited for light to heavy loads and are ideal for thin wall tubes.

Rod Lock

The RLN Series Rod Lock from Advanced Machine & Engineering Co. (Rockford, IL) is designed to solve pneumatic control problems such as overtravel, drifting, bouncing, and reverse traveling. The Amlok(R) type RLN is constructed of black anodized aluminum with a piston and wedge locking mechanism actuated by multiple springs that mechanically lock the rod quickly and securely. The clamp is unlocked when air actuates the piston, compresses the spring, and releases the locking device.
