Drift Clip Bypass Framing Connector
The IDCB drift-clip connector is used to secure bypass stud framing to the edge of a slab. The connector will accommodate 25mm of lateral drift in each direction and 25mm of upward and downward vertical deflection.
Tested load values are provided for anchorage to a steel edge angle using Ø5.5 x 32 Strong-Drive® XL large-head metal screws.
- Horizontal embossments and corner gussets optimise performance in the F2 load direction.
- Precision-manufactured shouldered screws provided with the IDCB connector are designed to prevent overdriving and to ensure that the clip functions properly.
- Simpson Strong-Tie® No-Equal stamps mark the center of the slots to help ensure correct shouldered screw and anchor placement.
