StiffClip® HS

TSN_StiffClip_HS

The StiffClip® HS series is used when connecting headers or sills to jambs. StiffClip HS transfers horizontal loads from the header to the jamb while incorporating a shelf leg for alignment of the JamStud header during installation. StiffClip HS is designed to be used with a single TSN JamStud with a 2.5", 3" or 3.5" flange as the header or sill member.

  • Guide holes for connections to column and JamStud, box header or sill
  • Resists vertical and horizontal loads
  • Acts as a web stiffener
  • Quick installation

  • Reduces labor expense
