What are Clock springs?
Designed to provide torsion, clock springs are sometimes needed in place of traditional torsion springs as they rotate in circular movements. As a kind of torsion spring, clock springs are prepared from flat wires instead of round wires. The main difference between the two lies in the way the force is presented, as a clock spring revolves around an object’s axis, pushing its force onto another object via the outer edge of the spring.
