GN111.6 Retaining Ring, Stainless Steel, for Ball Chains and Retaining Cables
These retaining rings, GN 111.6, are normally used together with ball chains or retaining cables. Their stainless steel construction makes them corrosion resistant and ideal for use even in challenging conditions. This also makes them perfect for use in clean room environments, such as found in the food, medical & pharmaceutical industries.
They have a wide range of uses, and one typical application involves making star knobs or knurled screws captive to prevent loss. Star knobs with loss protection made up of hand knobs with cut-in and mounted retaining ring, with retaining cable or ball chain are available as GN6336.13.
Ball chains and retaining cables are to be ordered separately.
