Backsplash Clip, SKU 410

$0.79

Backsplash Clip (With 1 Mounting Screw)

Application
The Backsplash Clip is designed to be used in both the plant and field to solves many problems associated with the installation, maintenance and durability of countertops and backsplashes.  Over time cabinets and floors begin to settle, causing gaps between the countertop and backsplash.  This is a primary cause of internal water damage.The  Backsplash Clip provides a mechanical lock, and when set into a bed of caulk (as per AWI Premium grade  installations) provides the highest possible performance .

Note: The clip can also be used as a counter top support, especially when used in full 12ft. lengths.  

Specifications
The Backsplash Clip is made of extruded aluminum cut to length at 2-1/4" wide with one drilled hole.  (or in un-drilled 12ft. lengths).  The clip provides a sprung-mechanical connection between the countertop and backsplash that is durable, permanent, and corrosion resistant. The Backsplash Clip is quick to install and water resistant. The Backsplash Clip eliminates the need for hot melt glue or kickers that require a second trip for caulking any significant gaps between the backsplash and the countertop.  The Backsplash Clip leaves an almost invisible joint line between the countertop and backsplash.

Product Advantages

  • Allows the installer to complete the installation of the backsplash and caulking in one trip.
  • The wedge design forces the backsplash to tighten against the countertop leaving almost no gap.
  • Because the back splash is locked into position, the backsplash can immediately be set in a bed of caulk.
  • Complies with AWI premium requirement for countertop mechanical fasteners.
  • When used in combination with a bed of silicone any small gap is almost completely waterproof.

Note:  Backsplash Bar Clip,12ft. Length, (1 bar & 12 mounting screws,SKU 411 $29.00).

Cost & Benefit Estimates

  • Machining in the shop with an end stop, on a shaper, is eliminated. (shop hours generally cost more than installation hours).
  • No second-trip required for caulking.
Strength Testing
with 3/4" - 45 lb. particle board
  • Tensile Failure (Horizontal pull) = 40 lbs. –  Working Strength, Pull from Furring = 10 lbs.
  • Shear Failure (Vertical weight holding) = 200 lbs. –  Working Strength, Weight holding = 40 lbs.
