520 Ceiling Clip Pair: Nylon
The 520 Ceiling Clip Nylon Pair is a 3-part clip designed to safely hang ceiling panels overhead. They are designed to be installed onto a ¾ wood furring system. They are sold in pairs, which include upper and lower clips, 2 locking arms, and a quantity of 10 #8-3/8" wood screws. They can be used to install, wood panels, acoustical panels, wood beams, slats, and more. The 520 Ceiling Clips slide into each other and once the locking pins are installed in the final steps they snap into place. This locking-style clip is still removable with soft mallet blows around the panel to jolt the locks loose.
(Tip for a more removable connection: Using locking pins on the corner clips only will allow the panel to be removed with less force. A soft mallet or a stiff palm blow will dislodge the locking arms. Internal clips will be for weight baring support and warp protection only.)

The 520 Ceiling Clip Nylon Pair is a 3 part clip designed to safely hang ceiling panels over head. They are designed to be installed onto a ¾ wood furring system. They are sold in pairs, which includes upper and lower clips, 2 locking arms 10, #8-3/4" wood screws. They can be used to install, wood panels, acoustical panels, wood beams, slats and more. The 520 Ceiling Clips do not drop and lock but slide together and lock into place with a removable locking arm when the installer is ready for permanent installation. The Quick Introduction Amination is helpful to understanding the mechanism.
The 520 Ceiling Clip Nylon Pair is two separate clips. The top clip is a shelf like profile and mounts on the furring. The lower clip mounts on the panels and slips into the upper clip. All the meeting surfaces are carefully angled to guide the clips into position. There is a 1/4" tolerance in both front to back and side to side. The size of the mated pair is 2" x 3-1/2" and the screw are a standard pattern for simple layout.
The layout overhead is difficult, we recommend the use of a template. Making a 1/4" plywood template only takes a few minutes and works well consistently. Once all the clips have been installed, test fit the panels. After the fit and placement have been confirmed, install the locking arms and reinstall for permanent installation. The panel can be removed, but the locking clips will need to be replaced.
520 Ceiling Clip is made out of a 15% Fiber Glass infused Nylon with an automotive grade strength rating
