Used to secure U-channel to wall studs for lateral bridging
EasyClip™ X-Series™ Clip Angles are used to secure U-channel to wall studs for lateral bridging. U-Channel is passed through the stud knockout and an EasyClip™ X-Series™ clip is screw attached or welded to provide a rigid connection. X-Series™ clip angles and U-channel should not be used in lateral bridging when stud width exceeds 8". EasyClip™ X-Series™ clip angles are also used to secure one framing member to another or to attach and reinforce headers and sills in door and window openings. X-Series™ clips are prepunched for faster and more accurate fastener placement.
- 2" x 2" legs.
- Available in 3-3/8", 5-3/4", 7-3/4" and 9-3/4" lengths.
- Prepunched for faster and more accurate fastener placement.

EasyClip™ X-Series™ Clip Angles are attached to cold-formed steel (CFS) framing members using #10 minimum selfdrilling screws driven through the clip holes into the steel framing. Four pilot clip holes are provided and should be filled when this clip is used in a bridging application. When this clip is used in other support or connection applications, refer to the allowable capacity chart to determine the appropriate number of fasteners required. As a general rule, fasteners should be evenly spaced (see figure 1). Clips can also be welded to the CFS framing. Connections to the building frame can be made with powder-actuated fasteners, drill-in concrete anchors or welding. When using the tabular values for a welded clip, provide a full weld to the structure, top to bottom, alongthe outside of the clip. A 3/4" minimum weld to the outside edge of the 2" leg is also recommended to control warping or to hold the clip in place before final welding. When installing powder-actuated fasteners, they must be placed 1/2" minimum away from the prepunched holes.
