They are wire circlips, not all that easy to find, a PDF product sheet download from one supplier is here.

Looks like the type of circlip used to hold the turntable on clockwork (wind up) gramophones, if your are trying to get one it might be worthwhile looking at suppliers of vintage gramophone parts.

I was intrigued to read the most commonly used application of 'C Form Rings':

Quote:

'Plain wire snap rings are radially applied to groove-less shaft applications with low thrust bearing loads. The frictional force applied by the ring prevents parts from sliding along the shaft. C-Form rings are most commonly used in vertical blinds to keep the rod inside the head rail from sliding'.

End quote.

As this clip has now been positively identified time to close this thread before it wanders off into every type clip known

Cheers
