Ring transporters are a form of transport used by a number of species to transport people over short distances, as from a starship to a planet below, by surrounding the transportees with a number of rings which demolecularize the objects, then transfering them to the intended target. They are also used onboard some Goa'uld spacecrafts in manner similar to elevators. In one instance, they killed Ra's Anubis-headed guard when Colonel Jack O'Neill activated the rings while he was on the edge of the markings so he was crushed. (Stargate - Movie)

Some species have the ability to hide their ring transporters for secrecy or surprise, such as the case of the Tok'ra and the Ori. (SG-1: The Tok'ra, Part 1, Origin)
