Lake Zurich, IL – Smalley Steel Ring Company introduces new Hoopster Retaining Rings. Hoopster
rings fit into much shallower grooves than regular snap rings or retaining rings.
The Hoopster’s low profile, precision circularity and small radial size allow it to be
an unobtrusive component in an assembly. Hoopster Retaining Rings are
suitable for light to heavy loads and are ideal for thin wall tubes. An additional
advantage of the Hoopster is its potential for high thrust capacity. The low radial
profile will not twist or deform under load as with conventional retaining rings.
Hoopster Retaining Rings are easily installed without special tools. Standard
sizes are stocked from 3/8” to 3″ and offered in carbon and 302 stainless steel.
Specials can be made with No-Tooling-Charges™.
Smalley offers complete information on the Hoopster Retaining Ring including a
new catalog supplement featuring part numbers and material options. Information
is available at www.smalley.com/hoopster.
