The VertiClip® SLF is used to accommodate vertical deflection requirements for connections between light steel framing and the primary structural system in a bypass condition when the stud web is inaccessible. VertiClip® SLF allows up to 1-1/2” of vertical deflection (¾” up and ¾” down). Pre-installed step-bushings in a vertical slot maintain a positive attachment between the clip and stud and ensure movement allowance between them preventing the transfer of any vertical forces into non-load bearing steel studs. VertiClip SLF allows up to 1-1/2” of offset between the stud and building structure and may be used with studs having 1-5/8” or 2” stud flanges.
