tongue and groove clips


I have been looking everywhere for these clips which are called "cladding clips" in the UK. I can't find them anywhere in the US no matter what combination of terms or names i try.

I intend to use them to install laminted tongue and groove flooring on the ceiling. The clips suspend the flooring.

This is a link to a Google image of these clips.

If anyone could help by telling me where to buy them online in the US or at least what they are called I would very much appreciate it.

Dave

If your talking about trying to install lamininet flooring to a ceiling that's just never ever going to work out.
It expands and contracts to much, no way to lock in the seams.

Joe, I don't think he's pioneering some crazy idea here:

Simpson makes (made?) the clips, part #16100. Must've been exclusive to the UK market. I don't see the part# in the simpson US or UK catalogs though, so maybe they've been discontinued. It looks like you can still order them online.
