Drywall clips

Drywall clips

Metal or plastic stops that are attached to framing at inside corners. The clips replace framing, thus leaving more room for insulation. Because such a corner floats, acting as a stop, the clip allows the first sheet of drywall to be trapped by the second, perpendicularly installed sheet, and cracking of the drywall joint is less common.
