Axle snap ring - replace or reuse

Its on the intermediate shaft on my car. Im replacing the axle but in the helms it says replace this ring as well.

Ive never had to replace them in the past as I have bought rebuilt axles

any idea if they can be reused fine?

i reused mine with no problems, jus give the axel a little tug and if it stays in then the ring is fine

i have also re-used them. But make sure it stays in when you pull on it like mentioned above.
