I just purchased a small outrunner motor and it came with a spare shaft. One of the shafts has a small groove at the end to put a C clip in it. Excuse my ignorance but what is it used for? Thank You

Two thoughts come to mind:
1. It's simply a replacement shaft in case you damage the first one.
2. It's to allow you to switch the mounting direction of the motor.

Thank You, I knew it was a stupid question but when you don't know you don't know.
