PosiKlip

Positive attachment of studs to track, while providing deflection for rated and non-rated walls.

PosiKlips offer a simple yet totally effective alternative to double track or slotted track systems. By engaging the short flange of the metal stud and then attaching to the inside flange of the ceiling track, PosiKlips provide deflection for both rated and non-rated walls.

  • PosiKlips can replace double track or slotted track systems in interior or exterior walls.
  • By varying track depth, PosiKlips are designed to handle diverse deflections.
  • PosiKlips effectively lock jamb or king studs at the frame while allowing for deflection.
  • PosiKlips reinforce any stud to a track connection while allowing for deflection.

Key Benefits of PosiKlip

Cost-Effective Alternative

When considering unit cost plus ease of installation, PosiKlips are a smart alternative to traditional double track or slotted systems. By engaging the clips to the short flange of the metal stud, then attaching them to the inside flange of the ceiling track with two #6 tek screws, the studs are effectively locked at the frame while still allowing for necessary deflection.

PosiKlips are designed to be used with any stud, any track size, or any gauge. PosiKlips are sold in quantities of 500 clips and are available in 20 and 16 gauge.

Deflection Capabilities

PosiKlips are designed to provide deflection for both rated and non-rated walls.

For non-rated walls, PosiKlips can be used with the deep leg track.
For rated walls, PosiKlips can be used with the deep leg track in conjunction with fire caulk or spray to achieve a fire rating.

PosiKlips can also be used for rated walls with the Fire Trak System to strengthen the connection between the stud and the track on deflections over 2 inches.
