Strong-Drive SDPW Deflector screws from Simpson Strong-Tie are designed to connect nonbearing, full-height partition wall top plates to trusses or joists. Simpson says the fasteners help provide lateral resistance and allow walls to deflect with the truss or joist, while the screw’s polymer sleeve helps eliminate squeaks from metal-on-metal connections. The screws, available in 3 1/2-, 5-, and 6-inch lengths, allow contractors to manage up to a 1 1/2-inch gap between the top plate assembly and the joist or truss.
