The article deals with ball-type safety-overrunning clutches' elastic characteristics in overload mode. Main semi-couplings geometric parameters, particularly ball stroke and semi-couplings twisted angles, affecting operation speed and clutch elastic torque considered and obtained expressions for this parameters determination. Main clutch parts force interaction features in the final overload operation period analyzed and ratios for the clutch final period load are obtained. Based on current and previous studies, the expressions for elastic torque in the overload operation period are estimated. Obtained results could become the tool for the dynamics analysis of studied clutch-equipped driving operation during the clutch reengagement in overload mode. It is shown the expedience of using in high-speed driving clutches with large values of grooves to clutch axis inclination angle to decrease dynamic loads in driving, because in little and middle angles values provide nosedive dropping of final stage torque which can become a source of intense oscillations in the driving equipped with clutch in overload mode.
