Precision Ratchet and Pawl Gear, R16S20-20, Ratchet - Intermittent MotionRatchets and pawls are mechanical assemblies allowing a shaft to rotate in one direction and not the other. W.M. Berg ratchets and pawls are manufactured of the highest quality 303 stainless steel and 17-4 PH stainless steel. Ratchets are commonly known as ratchet wheels, because they consist of a rotational gear (or rack) with angled teeth. Pawls are thin pieces of metal which rest against ratchets to restrict the ratchet's motion. When the ratchet is rotated in one direction, the pawl is raised and moves smoothly between the ratchet's teeth. When the ratchet's rotation stops, the pawl drops between the ratchet teeth and makes clicking noises.

Ratchets can operate quietly and smoothly or be harsh and jarring, depending on the installation of the ratchet teeth and pawl. Common applications for ratchets and pawls include use in spanners, turnstiles, winders and jacks.
