A garter spring is a coiled steel spring with the ends connected to form a circle. The primary application for Stanley garter springs is to maintain lip seal pressure on a shaft. They’re commonly used in belt-driven motors, electrical connectors, oil seals, and shaft seals. It’s important to note that extension garter springs exert inward radial forces while compression garter springs exert outward radial forces. Stanley Spring offers custom fabricated garter springs that will meet any need you may have.
