Press Release

New Hoopster® Retaining Rings from the Smalley Steel Ring Company
Now Available in Canada from RotoPrecision

October 14, 2009


Mississauga, Ontario: The Smalley Steel Ring Company, a world leader in the manufacture and development of Spirolox® retaining rings, snap rings and wave springs, is pleased to introduce new Hoopster® retaining rings.

Hoopster® retaining rings fit into much shallower grooves than regular snap rings or retaining rings. The low profile, precision circularity and small radial size allow it to be an unobtrusive component in an assembly.  Hoopster® retaining rings are suitable for light to heavy loads and are ideal for thin wall tubes. An additional advantage of the Hoopster is its potential for high thrust capacity. The low radial profile will not twist or deform under load as with conventional retaining rings. They are easily installed without special tools.  Standard sizes are stocked from ⅜" to 3" and offered in carbon and 302 stainless steel. Specials can be made with No-Tooling-Charges™.

Smalley offers complete information on Hoopster® retaining rings including a new catalog supplement featuring part numbers and material options.
