Garter Springs

A Garter spring can start with either a compression spring or extension spring configuration.

The ends of the spring are then connected so the finished spring is a circle exerting radial forces. Connecting the ends can be accomplished in several ways; interlocking the end loops, tapering one end and screwing into the opposite end, soldering, or using another short extension spring as a connector by screwing it into both ends of the spring body. Garter springs are commonly used in seals and can apply either a pushing action or a pulling action with radial pressure.
