<p>I mean these. Sometimes they are called body clips.</p>
<p>
shell gas finder</p>
<p>Another variation of the snap ring/ circlip Corgi used is this one:</p>
<p>
nearest chevron station</p>
<p>Thse complete clip will stay in the groove. To take it off, you need a special pointed pliers, place them in the holes and spread the clip.</p>

Press on nuts is one of the names for what you have on the Corgi Cub shovel.

<p>Thanks for calling me an expert, but for what?</p>
<p>Well, I would use the circlips because I have that special plier for it. I also restore motorcycles that´s why I bought it.</p>

<p>But you can not get some pressure on it like the press on circlips or nuts Jim mentioned. Maybe use a washer under it.</p>

<p>I noticed you watched 'my' thread more than 3 weeks ago, but you did not add anything. So therefore, because you were in earlier today, I had to trigger you to say something, in which I succeeded. I than had to call you an expert, because the earth digger in your avatar.....</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice, but thing is, I think this is the only model on which Corgi used this circlip. So no point in buying a tool just for that purpose. No room for a washer, because there is a very thin groove in which the clip rests.</p>

The one I did had no washer under and fit tight like a glove.

Well, the Matchbox Rustun shovel is much simplier in construction, all riveted.
Maybe I am an expert in rivet lookalikes..
