What is a spring clip

Several types of components may be referred to as spring clips, but typically the term applies to a Terry clip. These enable a cylindrical object to be rapidly attached and removed, by simply pushing it into the clip or pulling it out.

The production process of spring clips

The plastic extrusion process is regularly used to produce spring clips, as manufacturers can quickly create a large volume of parts with identical cross-sections. Additional machining may be employed to add holes and other details, but extrusion is capable of a wide range of shapes, and is well suited to clip manufacture. 

How to choose the right spring clip?

If the inner hole diameter of the spring chuck is selected too large, the workpiece is only clamped by the orifice part of the spring chuck when the chuck is closed, which is likely to cause a mismatch in the geometry between the outer circle of the workpiece and the inner hole of the spring chuck, thus reducing the clamping force. If the diameter of the inner hole of the spring chuck is selected too small, only the inside of the inner hole of the chuck is in contact with the workpiece when the chuck is closed, so that although the clamping force increases, it will cause the different shafts of the chuck and the workpiece. A spring chuck of specification size can only clamp and position workpieces of the corresponding diameter size.

Clips and Fasteners are most commonly categorized as flat or sheet material that is formed into simple or complicated shapes. Most often, Clips and Fasteners are manufactured using both low and high carbon steels, depending on the application. In some applications, high carbon spring steels are utilized where a spring force is required that cannot be obtained with normal spring forces. When high carbon spring steels are used for manufacturing, it is a standard requirement that the product is heat treated and quenched to a hardness level that allows the product to flex without deforming. 

Application of spring clips

Spring clips are regularly used in retaining and clamping applications as their strong grip is able to resist tension, movement and if they are attached between components in machinery they can help to dampen vibration. Circlips can be used to replace the nut, bolt and washer combination that is often used to attach components together, such as in drive shafts.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Let's start with the most basic question - what is a spring clip? These distinctive machined clips are used to hold cylindrical objects such as tools in place via spring tension. They can also be used to connect and attach moving parts in engines and other mechanical equipment.

To remove spring clips from inside the frame, push them down towards the backing board and slide them out. Set aside. If hard to remove, use a set of needle nose pliers to gently push springs down and pull out. These clips apply pressure within the frame and keep the insides in place!

Whether you call it a metal clip or a clasp, a catch or a latch, a clamp or a spring clip – chances are Fourslide can help you. We make metal clips of all descriptions, from money clips to belt clips to fasteners in a wide variety of materials and finishes.

Our common springs are compression springs, tensile springs, torsion springs, scroll springs, circlips and other spring types, springs in all walks of life and daily life are also everywhere, from satellite spaceships, car bottoms to remote control panels, battery boxes, etc.
