The Patent Summary
This patent protects a wall framing system. A wall framing system includes a channel member having two opposite side walls and a stud having two opposite side walls and at least one locking member. The locking member is integrally formed with the stud and is arranged, when the stud has been located at a desired position in the channel member between the side walls thereof, to be bent into a locking position in which the locking member exerts outwardly directed forces on the side walls of the stud thereby achieving a frictional engagement between the stud and the channel member. The patent was awarded in 2014.
