Description

EasyClip™ U-Series™ Clip Angles are used to secure U-channel to wall studs for lateral bridging or for miscellaneous rigid connections. U-channel is passed through the stud knockout and an EasyClip™ U-Series™ clip is screw-attached or welded to provide a rigid connection. EasyClip™ U-Series™ clips are prepunched for faster and more accurate fastener placement. U-Series™ clip angles and U-channel should not be used in bridging applications when the stud width exceeds 8".

  • 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" legs.
  • Lengths available in 3-3/8", 5-3/4", 7-3/4" and 9-3/4".

Installation

Installation

U-Channel is inserted into the stud punchout (as specified by design) and rotated into place.  U-Series clip angles are attached horizontally to the outside or hard side of the cold-formed steel (CFS) framing members. The clip must be firmly seated against the web of the U-channel. The clip should not be more than 1/4" less than the cold-formed framing member. U-Series clips are fastened using #10 minimum self-drilling screws driven through the clip holes into the steel framing. Clips may also be welded to the CFS framing.
