Brand: Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies

When a rod end or spherical bearing is mounted in single shear and is not positively retained by the surrounding structure, most sanctioning bodies require large-diameter retainer washers to prevent loss of control in case the ball or race separates from the housing. Plain flat "fender" washers are large enough, but they restrict the motion of the bearing. The washer needs a bevel to allow full freedom of movement at the joint.

Our Safety Retainer Washers are specially machined just for this purpose. These plated steel washers have a 45 degree bevel for unrestricted motion, with an integrated large-diameter washer portion for safety. We offer SAE bore sizes of 1/4 through 5/8 inch and metric bore sizes of 8mm to 16mm.

* The outside diameter is sized to be greater than the bearing race diameter of most standard bearings. However, it is up to the installer to make sure that the washer diameter exceeds the race diameter.

Great Product

Only way I could think of improving this product is to make a stainless option which I would be happy to pay extra for. I have coated the plated surface with grease but eventually it will probably rust.

Yes, they are more expensive than a giant flat washer. They are stronger and I used them in some critical steering heim joints for added security. The shape does allow for more joint movement than a flat washer.

High quality machined washer, adds security to rod end bearing installations without hindering movement. Should be on every rod end/heim for such a reasonable price.
