E Clips – How to measure E Clips!

Caleb Components has been selling high quality E Clips for many years and are now available to buy online through our online store.

When it comes to ordering E Clips it can be difficult to know exactly which size to order, so here is some information on how to measure the correct size.

Metric E Clips (D1500 / DIN6799) are always listed by the groove size they’re fitting in to on the shaft. For example if you have a 5mm groove on your shaft, you will need to order a 5mm E Clip, this should then fit a shaft size of between 6mm – 8mm. Alternatively if you know the shaft size then we can also identify which E Clip you need.

Imperial E Clips (N1500) on the other hand, are always measured by Shaft size. For example if you have a 5/32″ shaft you will need a 5/32″ E Clip.

Both Metric and Imperial E Clips are available to buy online, here is the link:

Spring Pins – What size do I order?

Spring Pins can also be known as Roll Pins or Tension Pins.

These kinds of pins are universally used, economical shear-type fastener models, which possess self-locking capabilities. When they are created, they are manufactured to an oversize dimension. This is done so that once the pin has been placed inside a hole radial forces are exerted, holding the spring in position.

Typical uses of the spring tension pins include spacers, hinge and stop, and dowels in countless non-precision and demanding industrial applications.

Finding the right size of Spring Pin couldn’t be easier, Spring Pins are always listed by the hole size the Pin is fitting into. For example, if you need a pin to fit a 6mm hole, you would order a 6mm Spring Pin and then choose the appropriate length of Pin you require.

External Circlips for Shafts

External Circlips are designed to be fitted onto shafts with grooves. The circlips can be used as securing device to ensure that either the shaft is not displaced or items upon the shaft are secured in place.

The easiest way to measure an External Circlip is by measuring the shaft size the Circlip is fitting on to. For example if you have a 20mm shaft, you will need a 20mm External Circlip. External Circlips are listed by the shaft size they’re fitting on to.

Alternatively, you can measure the INSIDE diameter of the circlip, and we can then help identify which Circlip you require for your shaft.

Our External Circlips are available in Carbon Steel and Stainless Steel.
