Retaining rings on wire packaging

Rings On Wire

Standard bulk packaging for certain rings. Rings on Wire eliminates mixed parts and sorting while reducing part handling and transit. All parts are packaged burr oriented; beveled parts are properly oriented on the stack; and ROW yields a flatter part. Best of all, there is no additional cost for this packaging method.

Packaging Code: ROW

Bulk packaging for retaining rings

Bulk Packaging (No Code)

Retaining rings are packaged in boxes or bags based on part size. Ideal for manual or pneumatic installation.

Retaining rings stacked on tape for packaging

Shrink wrapped retaining rings

Shrink Wrapping

Rings are shrink wrapped, which is particularly useful on Phosphate and Oil (PD) or other oiled parts to which tape will not stick.

Packaging Options by Product Line

For more detailed packaging options for each of our product lines, select one of the below.


  • Rotor Clip stacking and bowl sorting methods prevent mixed or foreign parts — a particularly critical assurance to manufacturers who must meet the automotive industry’s strict PPM targets.
  • Rings on Wire stacking offers built-in quality assurances:
    • Parts are automatically stacked to the correct gap and bevel orientation for easy placement in assembly lines.
    • Because wires must pass through every lug hole, every retaining ring will be properly punched.
    • Tangled parts are eliminated, simplifying both automated and manual assembly.
  • An extensive quality policy focuses on meeting and exceeding customer expectations.
  • Lot traceability. Every product provided by Rotor Clip is labelled with a lot number. When needed, this lot number can be used to trace the history of the product, from raw material acquisition to shipment, including inspection records.
