Garter springs are extension springs with the ends fastened together to form a ring. They are primarily used to maintain controlled pressure of a radial lip seal on a shaft and to compensate for lip wear, changes in volume or stiffness of the elastomer caused by the fluid, and the effect of temperature changes and time. Other uses include small motor belts and electrical connectors.

Associated Spring Raymond Asia garter springs are engineered and manufacturer to provide a consistent and reliable product. They feature high initial tension to provide constant load and a special tapered end to assure a strong connection and a continuous near uniform body diameter.
