Spring Clips

Spring Clip, Fuse Clip, Component Clip - Standard Style

Definition: Standard style spring clips are used for the majority of applications that require spring clips. They exert a uniform pressure or tension to hold a component in place. The styles vary in accordance to the requirements of the application: External tabs for wiring connections and as stops to hold component in place, nylon insulated bases to provide electrical insulation to clip from the assembly, various hole sizes and patterns and round and odd-shaped component configurations.

Standard Spring Clips are available in the following materials and finishes:

  • Beryllium Copper: Cadmium types I & II, Chrome, Degreasing, Bright Nickel, Pickling, Silver, Bright Tin, Hot Tin Dip, and Zinc types I & II
  • Spring Steel: Baking, Black Oxide, Cadmium types I & II, Chrome, Degreasing, Bright Nickel, Pickling, Phosphate, Silver, Bright Tin, Hot Tin Dip, and Zinc types I & II

Spring Clip, Fuse Clip, Component Clip - Slotted Style

Definition: Slotted style spring clips are used in applications where the component is of an inconsistent diameter. The fingers of the spring clip provide independent tension on the component as its diameter changes. It can also be used to hold two different components in the same spring clip. This style applies a lighter tension to the component than the standard style spring clip.

Slotted Spring Clips are available in the following materials and finishes:

  • Beryllium Copper: Cadmium types I & II, Chrome, Degreasing, Bright Nickel, Pickling, Silver, Bright Tin, Hot Tin Dip, and Zinc types I & II
  • Spring Steel: Baking, Black Oxide, Cadmium types I & II, Chrome, Degreasing, Bright Nickel, Pickling, Phosphate, Silver, Bright Tin, Hot Tin Dip, and Zinc types I & II
