Framing Clip


I am researching some basement wall "methodology". I can build walls and all but I'm interested in the L-shaped framing clips as typically used on a basement wall connection to the joist at top of wall. I understand the implementation of the clip for allowing heaving & expansion of the concrete basement floor etc. The clip is usually described as an L-shape that nails to the top of the wall and has slits in the vertical leg that nail to the joist. Can anyone provide an image or link to such clip. I can't find anything that matches that description. Is this a clip specifically for this purpose, or is their a generic clip that framers use to serve this purpose?

Thanks, that's a good reference for steel studs. Is their another version for typical 2x4 wood framing also?

That one would not allow for the wall moving up and down as the slab heaves.

jrepp44, YEA! I'm sure that's it. There may be others and I'll look when I have more time but that would work for anything I would be doing.

Thanks,
Kev

Kev....download the Simpson catalog....it's well worth having on your comptuer.

You might also want to see if there is a building supply near by....and I don't mean Lowes of HD. I'm lucky in that there is one a mile from me....free Simpson catalogs....I have two...one stays in the bathroom.

From your initial description I was thinking you were talking about huricane ties....they nail to the top plate and have a slot for the rafter or ceiling joist to sit in.
