Abstract

A U-shaped spring steel clip 1 acts as a locking member between a seal 3 and apparatus cover flange 5. Teeth 7 formed in on the clip 1 grip the cover flange 5 to provide high resistance to removal with easy assembly to the cover. Teeth 9, formed out on the clip 1, latch behind a tooth 11 in the seal 3 and grip the opposite sides of the seal slot. Teeth formed out on both sides remove any need for directional assembly.
