I do not understand #7

Someone please expain?

|sorry, "House Frame Upright."|
|Posted by MarcM1098||05/18/10|
|Many houses are built on a light-weight frame. If you could look inside your wall, you would see upright pieces (usually 2-by-4s) called studs, and horizontal pieces called plates.|

|good explanation of a stud Marc, Though tin is a combination of metallic elements and not an element itself , close enough I suppose because even I could figure it out. Thanks.|

|Good teaser, really had to give several of them a lot of thought. Thanks for posting.|

|The "house frame upright" clue barely made sense, but I got it anyway.
and Tin is an element... look at the periodic table.|

|builder, Tin is an element of itself. #50 on the periodic table abbreviation of Sn. :D
I lurve my periodic table!|

|So many like these. After a while you get bored. :(|

|These would be more challenging if the letter to be dropped from the end of the first word weren't always the same letter, in this case "y."|

|I enjoyed it as I always do. For those who want the challenge of not knowing the letter, just look at Marc's other teasers he has a bunch of those too.
I am really surprised at those who did not get (as in understand) the "stud' one, I thought te fact that that the upright pieces of wood (or metal) that frame a house were called "studs" was common knowledge, I knew it, and I know nothing about tools or building or construction at all.
Marc, I went to see if you've done Z yet, and noticed there are a number of letters missing! I know it can't be easy to find words that work for each letter that work in these (the behead ones as well), but I was looking forward to doing the whole alphabet before I tackle the ones that the letter is unknown.|

|There is no "Curtail Z", I couldn't find enough words to do a whole teaser on just that, but I think there are few Z-ending words in the regular Curtail series (where each word ends in a different letter).|
