Dual SofTouch

Our new unique dual feature grid accessory providing both flexible ceiling tile control and a movable grid hanger with easy horizontal positioning providing extra grid support as needed for pop displays, decorations, signage, or even hanging plants. The “dual sofTouch” does not grip the grid face which allows easy snap on installation on the grid bulb and for other vendors grid face hangers to mount directly under the “dual sofTouch” or anywhere support is needed.

The design of this Keep Clip™ provides an extreme grip on grid. It is achieved by a hardened steel tab on each side of the grid which contact under the bulb. The two corners of said tabs are rounded to allow easy horizontal movement when floor display or hanging items must be moved.
