ClarkDietrich Building Systems TRAKLOC is a cold-formed steel drywall framing system. It is for use in non-load bearing interior partition walls in commercial construction projects. The telescoping stud twists and locks into the top and bottom track. This eliminates the need to measure and cut studs on job sites. An interlocking component of the stud and track makes most connections unnecessary.

Flex-Ability Concepts' Three Legged Dog Clip slides over the top of a stud before it is lifted into place. This reduces the risk of clips being dropped during installation. The clips are offered in various sizes including 1 5/8 inches, 2 1/2 inches, 3 5/8 inches, 6 inches, 8 inches and 10 inches. The clips provide 1 3/4 inches of deflection in every size except 1 5/8 inches, which offers 1 1/2 inches of deflection.
