The product line extension introduces 9-inch and 11-inch clips to the existing lineup of 3-inch, 5-inch, and 7-inch clips. RCA utility clips from Simpson Strong-Tie are available in 12-gauge, 14-gauge, and 16-gauge and feature a G90 galvanized coating for enhanced protection against corrosion.

“The addition of these new lengths to the RCA family provides contractors with a robust range of versatile utility clips to cover a wide range of jobsite applications,” said Simpson Strong-Tie product manager Clif Melcher. “Now contractors have a wide assortment of convenient, quality utility clips at their disposal without having to cut angles in the field.”

Simpson Strong-Tie® RCA utility clips are easy to install, with pre-punched holes for quick

and accurate fastener attachment, and can be used for a wide variety of cold-formed steel applications, including miscellaneous header/sill connections to jamb studs, jamb stud reinforcement at track, u-channel bridging, stud-blocking, bypass curtain-wall framing, and joist connections.
