    A kip is a non-SI unit of force. It equals 1,000 pounds-force, used primarily by architects and engineers to measure engineering loads.

    Although uncommon, it is occasionally also considered a unit of mass, equal to 1,000 pounds, i.e. one half of a U.S. ton.

    1 kip = 4448.2216 Newtons (N) = 4.4482216 kilonewtons (kN)
