Extended SwiftClip™ LE-Series

USED In rigid attachments of wall studs to the structure

ClarkDietrich’s Extended SwiftClip™ LE-Series rigid framing clip is used to attach exterior wall studs to the structure of the building.

Designed to resist horizontal and vertical loads, the extended rigid clips install easily with screws, powder-actuated fasteners, or welds. This clip is ideal for all medium and large standoff conditions. These clips are unpunched as the specific application will determine the appropriate number and placement of fasteners.

  • 1-1/2" x 3" legs for up to 20" long clips
  • 1-1/2" x 2-5/8" legs + 1/2" return for clips longer than 20"
  • All clips: 68 mils (14 gauge) 50ksi, CP90
  • Extended SwiftClip LE-Series clips are unpunched

Table Notes:

  1. Extended SwiftClip LE-Series intended for axial compression and tension loading
  2. lx, ly are the gross moment of internia about the X-axis and Y-axis, respectively.
  3. Sx, Sy are the section modulus about the X-axis and Y-axis, respectively.
  4. rx, ry are the radius of gyration about the X-axis and Y-axis, respectively.
  5. x(c), y(c) are the distances of the centroid to the X-axis and Y-axisattachment planes.


Extended SwiftClip™ LE-Series are attached to cold-formed steel framing members using #10 minimum selfdrilling screws. Clips can also be welded to the cold-formed steel framing. Connections to the building frame can be made with powder-actuated fasteners, drill-in concrete anchors or welding. The appropriate type, number and placement of fasteners need to be determined by a design professional and engineer of record.
