Nearly all retaining rings provide design and engineering benefits versus other fasteners. In particular, retaining rings replace the high cost of machine shoulders, the labor intensive installation of cotter pins and washers and the uncertainty of collar and screw designs in a vibrating environment. In most cases, machining a groove is cheaper and more resiliant than turnng threads and using a "bolts and nuts" approach. Snap rings are supported by a full line of automated installation equipment.
