Abstract

This tool mounts a metal retaining ring onto a metal or plastic stud. The two-piece tool first clamps the ring against the circuit board being mounted. After the ring is firmly clamped, a central tool member operates to deflect the ring's retention fingers into and against the mounting stud.
