The circlip consists of open ends that are locked at the desired place mostly in a machined groove on a dowel pin or bearing. The circlip ensures rotation, but prevents lateral movement.




There are two typesinternal and external circlips, referring to whether they are mounted in a bore or in a shaft. Circlips are often used to secure hinged connections.
