Steel stud framing - what to do along wall?

When you are framing with steel studs along a wall where you cannot reach around to put a screw into the back side, what are you supposed to do? Are you only supposed to screw the front of the stud into the track or do you need to also get a crimping tool to get to the back in some way?

I would run the screw from the inside of the stud out through the track.

What guage studs are you using.
One screw should be just fine.
If you want to insure the studs don't move install bridging @ the lowest point & the highest point bridging can be either 3/4" or 1-1/2" cold rolled channel.

Will be standard 25G studs.

I'll just try and run a screw out the back, thanks!
