- Commonly referred to as a retaining ring, snap ring, or c-clip
- The most popular and widely used style of radial snap ring
- Called "E" rings because of the three prongs on the inside of the ring
- These rings make contact with the bottom of a groove on a shaft to create a shoulder for effective assembly retention
5/16" External SE models have a smaller free diameter than standard 'E' snap rings of the same size, thus making them a lighter product.

Note: Due to the stamp-mold process, the retaining rings may be slightly magnetic
