The picture is from the rear of my electric cooker. It shows the inside heating elements connection. I need to take them out in order to wash the inside properly. One of the elements is locked secured with a circular locking mechanism(screw inside for both). So I just wonder what I do to take it off and put back without any damage

Not designed for servicing. You can bend a few of the star-lock washer teeth up with a small screwdriver to relieve the grip and then remove. The washer can normally be reused by bending the teeth down again, but best to order some spares beforehand.

Thank you for your answer. Not sure were I can get some spares of that thing. Do know what it is named? Unfortunately for me, I think/know all old time hardware dealers around me are long gone. Nowadays every thing is prepacked. And the stores is filled by youths. They are polite but know nothing. No more people that know what they are doing. And if they did not have it. They for sure could call up another store that had it. But I i digress Wink

ah those buggers clips like if i remember right those are spring hardened  each pin need to be bent outwards a bit on each and go around until it loosens
i have seen those in old big reel tape machine  but i cant exactly remember where i have seen those at other places too
like holding a wheel on a childs wagon

to reuse them just press them back down if i remember right those i have delt with woe pretty sturdy

google star-lock washer, you'll need the diameter of the shaft that it fits on to. If you're careful you probably won't need a spare.
