The c-clip eliminators are used for high perf applications to eliminate the c-clip used to hold the axle in the housing. The c-clips are located on the end of the axle. The axles are machined smaller in this area and are prone to breaking under extreme conditions. When that happens, the wheel, drum, and axle will come out of the housing and leave you with just the backing plate to scrape on the ground (as you careen into a wall).
The c-clip eliminators prevent the axle from coming out of the housing in the event that an axle does break. They are excellent, and if you have them already, you have no worries.
