Product Overview

IDCB45.5-KT25 Drift-Clip Bypass Framing Connector (Kit of 25pcs)

The IDCB drift-clip connector is used to secure bypass stud framing to the edge of a slab. The connector will accommodate 1" of lateral drift in each direction and 1" of upward and downward vertical deflection. Tested load values are provided for anchorage to a steel edge angle using #12 x 1 1/4" Strong-Drive XL Large-Head Metal screws.

Key Features:

Horizontal embossments and corner gussets optimize 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

Use the specified type and number of fasteners and anchors.

In the vertical slots, use the specified number of #14 shouldered screws (included) for attachment to the stud. Install screws to align with the "No-Equal" stamp.

For attachment to a minimum 3/16"- and maximum 1/2"-thick steel edge angle, use Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive XL Large-Head Metal screws (XLQ114B1224). Use one screw centered in each horizontal slot. Install screws to align with the "No-Equal" stamp and back out 1/2 turn.

For fastener installation into steel backed by concrete, predrilling of both the steel and the concrete may be required. For predrilling, use a maximum 3/16"-diameter drill bit.
