AbstractThere is disclosed a socket retaining ring for use with power driven sockets to fasten the sockets to the plug of the drive tool. The retaining ring comprises a molded, one-piece elastomeric ring having an integral, diametric pin extending from one side substantially across the span of the ring. The retaining ring is used with sockets which have a pinned interconnection to the plug of the drive tool by inserting the flexible diametric pin of the ring into the retaining hole and seating the ring in the peripheral groove about the socket.
