DADCO’s Guide Retainer Sets (GRS) reduce die construction by replacing common pins, bushing and spools. This product line features a robust design using a one-piece housing with top and bottom wipers, precision fit retainer housing, composite bushings and two retainer mount options. Attachment holes at the top of the guide rod accommodate long fasteners for increased thread engagement and enhanced impact resistance.

Standard and Heavy Duty Guide Retainer Sets (GRS / GRS.HD)

The GRS Series Guide Retainer Sets are available in six standard rod diameter models (25 mm, 30 mm, 36 mm, 45 mm, 50 mm and 65 mm) and may be ordered in incremental stroke lengths from 20 mm to 150 mm plus.  Standard models provide combined guidance and retention with robust one-piece housings and top and bottom wipers. Heavy-duty, HD models, available in the 30 mm, 36 mm, 45 mm, 50 mm and 65 mm rod diameter sizes provide a more robust construction for strenuous applications; permitting up to 10 times the attachment mass and increased speed over the standard models.


The new GRS.45.HD4 and GRS.45.HD5 are here! The two models offer low profile retainers, with heavy duty construction for rail installation.
