Shaped Spring Clips

Nov. 15, 2002
Spring clips use compressive spring force to secure assembly components.

Spring clips use compressive spring force to secure assembly components. The clips come in many shapes and sizes to accommodate a variety of plastic and die-cast parts.

U-shaped clips are used to assemble cover panels, breaker trim, flange and channel assemblies, wire and cables, glass panels, armored cable, hinged components, and rubber and fiber.

S-shaped clips fasten panels and flanges in line with each other, or at an angle with these clips. They are particularly useful in assembling plastics and other soft materials in blind or hard-to-reach areas.

C-shaped and compression-ring clips have compressive action to hold plastic knobs firmly on steel shafts and permit their ready removal and reuse.
