Product Overview

The RTUD ratcheting take-up device is a cost-effective shrinkage compensation solution for continuous rod systems. The RTUD is now code-listed for use with rod systems to ensure highly reliable performance in a device that allows for unlimited shrinkage. Once the RTUD is installed, a series of internal threaded wedges enable the device to ratchet down the rod as the wood structure shrinks, but engage the rod in the reverse direction when under tensile loading. Continuous engagement is maintained on the rod at all times by the take-up device, enabling the rod system to perform as designed from the time of installation. Fastens easily to the wood plate with the BPRTUD3-4 bearing plate and (2) 8d x 1-1/2 in. nails (minimum) or (2) #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws.
  • Maintains rod-system tightness, allowing it to perform as designed
  • Pass-through design provides unlimited shrinkage compensation
  • Available for 3/8 in. and 1/2 in. Dia threaded rod
  • Install with 8d x 1-1/2 in. nails or #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD structural-connector screws
