BridgeClip®

BridgeClip
BridgeClip®
US Patent #5,904,023

BridgeClip® secures BB150 or 1½” cold-rolled channel (CRC) to stud, resisting both lateral and twisting loads. Tabs on the bottom of a BridgeClip clamp on the BridgeBar® or CRC, while #10 screws attach the clips to a channel and/or stud through pre-drilled guide holes. Efficient installation is not the only benefit, as BridgeClip is engineered to accommodate loads that have traditionally been addressed with generic L2x2x16ga.
