Hurricane Clips or Straps ? Builiding or Electrical ?
Is this Electrical Code or Building Code
i have been told it was electrical at a job here in Texas
and that i had to install Hurricane Clips or Straps to the 2x4 lay-in lighting
which i have never done i can not find any electrical code reference for this.
Out here where the sunsets, We call em Earthquake straps. Don't know if they are different.
Bending the tabs out of the equipment itself, adding a few screws, or fitting a piece thats bought for the light; I guess it just depends on how good the spec's are. LOL, or what they want.
The term made me think more of a structural building technic, nothing in respects to lights...

Thanks For the Help
