which lockring for ss conversion?

hey guys. i'm not sure which hyperglide lockring i need to complete an SS conversion. i have a hyperglide (internally threaded) cassette hub with spacers. what type of lockring do i need to keep it together? i notice that hyperglide rings are different for different gears. does it matter which one i use if it's single speed? for example: they have specific lockrings for 6-8 speed cassettes, 6-10, 8-10, et cetera with 11t or 12t. i just need a lockring to secure my spacers on my hub. does it matter which? thanks!!!

Assuming the last thing on the freehub is a spacer (and not the cog), I can't see how it would matter.

well, you can always use the lockring with it's proper end cog at the end of the stack of spacers.

lock ring | cog | spacer | cog placed for straight chainline | spacer | hub

this is how i've set up my ss conversions in the past, using the lockring that came off the salvaged cassette i took the cog from.
