WBAC162-R50 Wood Backing Steel Connector (Carton of 50pcs)
WBAC162-R50 Wood Backing Steel Connector

The WBAC wood backing steel connector is the ideal solution for connecting wood backing to cold-formed steel studs. Perfect for cabinets, shelves, handrails, heavy wall hangings and more, this versatile connector installs easily and provides tested strength. The WBAC is designed to eliminate alignment issues and reduce installation time. Since stiffness and strength are critical for these applications, the fastening pattern into both steel and wood has been engineered to optimize performance.
