HWDC3.37-KT25 Head-of-Wall Drift-Clip Connector (Kit of 25pcs)

Made for Versatility, with Proven Strength and Stiffness

The head-of-wall drift-clip connector (HWDC) is used to secure the head of a wall to the bottom of a slab or beam. The unique design allows anchor screws to be installed closer to the bend, providing a stronger and stiffer connection while also allowing horizontal and vertical movement during seismic and high-wind events. HWDC5.25 provides anchorage location options with a third slot providing a solution for clips overhanging beam flanges.

HWDC connectors are an optimal solution for adding strength to window or door jambs at head-of-wall connections. Tested load values are provided for anchorage to steel and concrete.

Key Features

Accommodates 1" of lateral drift in each direction, and 1" of upward and downward vertical deflection

Unique design and placement of the anchorage slots allows for closer attachment of anchorage to the clip bend, providing increased load capacity

The HWDC5.25 clip has three slots located at the anchorage leg allowing for attachment at the outer slots (anchorage pattern — centered) for maximum capacity or anchorage to the adjacent slots (anchorage pattern — off center) for walls that overhang the edge-angle or beam-edge

Stiffening ribs are placed in between anchorage slots through the bend to provide additional strength and stiffness

Simpson Strong-Tie No-Equal stamps mark the center of the slots to help ensure proper shouldered screw and anchor placement
