Series 206 StayPut Design Bearing Safety Cap
Covering an exposed rotating shaft is becoming more common as a safety precaution. Bearing manufacturers have a couple of bearing safety cap designs to cover the exposed, rotating, shaft, the most common being one that snaps into place. Unfortunately, with this design, it is easy to knock the cap off accidently. Often, it is not reinstalled because it gets lost. The JPS flange bearing safety cap is secured directly to the bearing mounting hardware, which means it “stays put” until it is meant to be removed.
