2-Prong PushDown Acoustic Impaler Clips
Brand : MetroFlex
- Unit Of Measure:
- Per Box (24 Clips)
2-Prong PushDown Impaler clips are used to easily attach Acoustic Panels to walls. The PushDown Impaler Clips are strong enough to hold panels made of both fiberglass or mineralwool and do not require any adhesive glue to hold the panels on the wall. Each clip has 2 angled prongs (1" long) that stick into the fiberglass panel backing and hold the panel in place. The dimensions of the clips are 3" x 1-1/2". These acoustic panel clips are installed on the wall by 1 to 2 drywall screws (not included). 4 impaler clips are recommended per standard 2' x 4' panel making sure one impaling clip is placed in each corner. For panel applications requiring an air gap, use our 2" Stand-Off Brackets.
PushDown Impaler Clips come in packs of 24 pieces.
1. Determine the location of your panel and have one person hold it up in place while the other person makes a light mark on the wall to show all 4 corners.
2. Attach 4 PushDown Impaler Clips approx 3" off each corner edge and an optional 2 more PushDown impaler clips 3" in from the edge of the center of the panel. The PushDown Impaler Clips should be screwed into the studs, so moving the clips a little to hit a stud is recommended. If screwing into a stud is not possible, use a drywall anchor type screw to ensure a proper hold.
3. While using a level on the top of the panel, line up the acoustic panel and when ready, press the acoustic panel downward onto the Impaler Clips until you the panel touches the wall.

I put up 2 in. and 4 in. 2x4 Owens Corning 703 panels with these. I used 4 impalers per panel. 4 is perfect number for the 2 in. I would recommend 6 impalers per panel of 4 in. because after I put one up, I could hear the fiberglass tearing a little as it settled but, it ultimately held. If you put 4 impalers up with the 2 in. they lock on immediately, no doubt. In fact, I thought the 2 in. would sink down a half inch or so but if you push them on at the exact height you want, that’s where they will stay. I would buy this kind of impaler if I did it again.
This product is an easy no hassle solution to mounting acoustic panels. Works like a charm. No fuss and very inexpensive. I will purchase these again. Thank you buyinsulationproducts.com!
