The assembly technique shown in Figure #l, eliminates a fastener which is commonly used to retain the belt clip pin, which in torn retains the belt clip, which in turn retains the belt clip spring. The part which has been eliminated is most commonly referred to as an E-ring or O-ring. The ring is used to retain one end of a headed pin, and to keep the assembly from separating, due to pin movement in the exiting direction.
