CLIP FOE WALLBOARDS
.- Harry H. Burson, Chicago, Ill.
Application March 25, 1937, Serial No. 132,918 r
(Cl. 72-118)
5 Claims.
The clip of the present invention is designed
in. the form of a saddle which is adapted to be
?tted over a beam or against a studding‘for the
purpose of providing sockets for the reception of
5 the meeting edges of wallboard sections or the
like employed as a ceiling or sheathing.
The clips are‘ so designed as to permit them to
be readily stampedv from sheet metal and so con
?gured as to provide’for the reception of adjoin
'10 ing wallboard sections on-each side of the saddle
clip without the ‘need for utilizing the beams or
studdings themselves assurfaces against which
the sheathing sections must be clamped.
Further objects and details of the invention
will appearfrom a description thereof in con
junction ‘with
Wherein,--

Figure 1V is a perspective view of the clip of the
present vinvention; '

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the blank before the
bending of the clip into saddle formation;
[8 and I9 is to out the metal free on each
of the header section, andto bend the portions ‘
thus out free in opposite directions to provide the
tongues. As shown, there are two oppositelylex
tending tongues I8 along one edge of the header 7
section cooperating with four narrower. tongues
l9 along the opposite edge, but the eifect,-as
stated, is to‘ afford channellike spaces for the re
ception'of the wallboard edges.‘
The '?anges l5 project beyond vthe free'edges *
H3v of the saddlelike body ill by an amountsub
stantially equal to the thickness of the wallboard,
so that, as shown,‘ when the'saddle ‘is mounted
upon a ‘beam or studding, the surface vof the
wallboard will abut against the beam orstud
ding, as the 'case may be, although where it ‘is
desirable, ‘in ceiling construction or ‘the like,‘to
provide for the locating of the wallboards-‘an ap
preciabledistanc'e below the beams, the‘ ?anges
Hi can be further extended to act as hangers for 20
locating the wallboard sections at the desired ele
Fig. 3 is a sectional view showing the method
of employing the clips suspended from a beam
vation.
The construction is one which gives to the sad
to aiford a ceiling;
[2 to aiford an extended contact with the sur
face of the beam or studding which not only af

_
Fig. 4 is a plan view showing the clip adjusted
to a studding; and
Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken on line 5-5
of Fig. 4.
The clip is formed from a single piece of sheet
30 metal to provide a body l0‘ in the shape of a sad
dle having side walls H and a connecting wall
i2, which saddle is adapted to ?t over and em
brace a beam l3 or a studding Hi as the case
may be.
35
Each of the side walls of the saddle shaped
body along one of its edges is provided with a
laterally extending ?ange l5, which ?ange pro
jects beyond the free edge 16 of the body and
connects with a socket header section I‘! extend
40 ing at right angles to the associated ?ange l5 but
in the same plane therewith; and each edge of
the socket header section is provided with op
positely extending tongues l8 on one side and IS
on the other side, arranged in staggered relation
45 and affording along each face of the header sec
tion H the equivalent of a channel for the recep
tion of the edge of a wallboard section 20, the
arrangement being such that the contiguous
edges of two wallboard sections will lie within
50 the channellike spaces thus provided on oppo
site sides of the thin header I1, so that the sepa
ration of the wallboard sections. will be negligible
by reason of the presence of the thin header sec
tions.
55
As shown, the method of forming the tongues
dle a sufficient length along the connecting wall
fords added rigidity but prevents any tendency
toward tilting or cantin-g and serves to hold the
saddle snugly around the beam or studding upon
which it is mounted. Furthermore, the arrange
ment is one which enables the parts all .to be
struck out from a ?at blank at right angles to
one another and without any twisting of the
metal, so that. all portions of the device will lie
in snug relation to the members with which they
are associated, and. substantially within the plane
of the surfaces with which they contact, thereby
avoiding the provision of parts which extend at
oblique angles to the surfaces with which they are
40
related.
The device makes -full provision for the com
plete socketing of both abutting edges of wall
board sections, the meeting edges of which ex
tend in transverse relation to the beam or stud
ding upon which the clip is mounted, but without
the necessity for closely clamping the surfaces of
the wallboard sections against the beam or stud
ding, which is important in cases where close
?tting to the structural elements is not desired.
For this purpose it is important to provide op 50
positely extending tongues along each edge of
the header members ll, so that the equivalent’ of
complete channels will be afforded along each
surface of the header in order to positively en
gage the wallboard edges along each side and 55

hold them ?rmly against displacement in either
direction.
