    Just going to bed (1AM). There is no pin in this sectioned fuze and no hole in the white steel ring.
    It came with this fuze and may not be correct but matches the No152A1 (AUST) on the fuze.
    My question is: Why is there a clip on the side of the ring? What purpose? Ron.

    The pin section must have been removed when it was sectioned.?

    I believe the clip holds the ring of the pin to prevent it accidentally being removed

    this is the only pic I can find on the net of the cover with a pin but it gives you an idea of how it works

    Any safety pin must be under the removeable cap and should have nothing to do with this white ring.
    If bent inwards the clip may put pressure on the sleeve and the removeable cap so it does not come off till actually pulled off before firing.

    I just saw your latest post. I have not seen this ring before unless it just keeps the white cap in position.
    I am open to all new information.

    I think the pin may possibly go through the hole in the removable cap and then the white cap goes over the top holding the ring of the pin with the clip. I am only guessing because there are no pics of this set up to confirm. Like you say im open to new information
