SwiftClip™ 1-1/2" x 3" (LE-Series)
1-1/2” leg x 3” leg fixed/rigid connection clip
SwiftClip support clips are used in multiple construction projects, specifically in conjunction with structural studs and track. These labor time-savers include prepunched holes for quicker screw attachments, and are punched to accommodate for CRC lateral bracing connections.
Pre-punched SwiftClips™ are used for multiple construction applications. 1-1/2" leg x 3" leg clips are commonly used for floor joist hangers and truss connections. Fixed clips should not be used in place of a deflection clip.

- SwiftClip Support Clips are attached to the cold-formed steel (CFS) framing members using #10 minimum self-drilling screws driven through the clip holes into the steel framing. Connections to the building frame can be made with powder-actuated fasteners, drill-in concrete anchors or welding.
- It is the responsibility of the design engineer to detail the attachment of clips and verify their capacity meets the application.
- Place the first two screws in each leg in the outermost screw holes. Place the next two screws (if needed) in center holes next to the CRC holes (diagonal). The next screws (if needed) are placed moving from the outermost holes toward the center, symmetrically.
