MC - Multi-Use Secure Clip

The multi-use secure clip “MC” is used in a variety of different applications including head of wall, joist connections, securing hips, rafters and trusses, reinforcing header connections, etc. Multi-use secure clip “MC” is constructed with Mill-Certified 50 ksi steel designed to resist vertical and lateral loads. Pre-punched guide holes are provided in each leg allowing for superior installation efficiency.

Features

  • Unique insert allows for 1 ½” total vertical deflection while maintaining lateral rigidity 
  • Large insert piece for ease of handling and installation and easy visual alignment for maximum vertical movement 
  • Meets or exceeds building code criteria

Material Composition

  • ASTM A653/A653M
  • 68 mil: yield strength: 57 ksi
  • 97 mil: yield strength: 57 ksi
  • 68 mil & 97 mil: G90 hot dipped galvanized coating
  • Slide clip material thickness = 68 mil 
  • Insert material thickness = 97 mil

Screw shear values are based on the SSMA Screw Table with the following notes:

  1. The allowable loads are based on the steel properties of the members being connected, per NASPEC with 2004 supplements.
  2. The nominal strength of the screw must be at least 3.75 times the allowable loads.
  3. Values include a 3.0 factor of safety.
  4. Penetration of screws through joined materials should not be less than 3 exposed  threads. Screws should be installed and tightened in accordance with the screw manufacturer’s recommendations.
  5. Allowable loads indicated on the table(s) are for force in single direction only. If more than one force is applied to the connection, the designer shall provide the combined forces check as required by NASPEC with 2004 supplements.
