SLD connects the interior drywall studs at the head condition (top of wall) to the deck or primary frame while allowing for a total vertical deflection of up to 1½ (¾ up and ¾ down). VertiClips unique design provides both an anti-friction and anti-seizure connection between the clip and the stud web surface thereby preventing a transfer of
vertical forces into drywall partition wall framing, which is not designed to support axial loads. VertiClip SLD is a component in VertiTrack

. Allowable loads are based on use of two #8 screws for attachment to stud (provided by TSN).
