Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of bolted holdowns offering low-deflection performance for a range of load requirements. The HD3B is a light-duty holdown designed for use in shearwalls and braced-wall-Panels, as well as other lateral applications. HDB holdowns are self-jigging, ensuring that the code-required minimum of seven bolt diameters from the end of the post is met.

  • Can be installed directly on the sill plate or raised above it.
  • Suitable for back-to-back applications where eccentricity is a concern
  • Designed to provide loads for intermediate-load-range shearwalls, braced-wall-Panels and lateral applications
  • Made from 12-Gauge steel
  • Galvanized for extra corrosion resistance
  • Install with 5/8 in. anchor bolt and 5/8 in. stud machine bolts

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Well made heavy gauge galvanized steel. The new deck building code in my area required two of these at every railing post. They are well made, strong, and met the code requirement. However, at near $10 per unit, it added substantial cost to the project. November 12, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product arrived as expected, works fiine. I had expected smaller diameter mounting holes, namely 1/2", and not the 5/8" diameter, in these hold down ties, since the American Forest & Paper Assoc. DCA-6 Specs. I'm using depict identical-looking hold down ties and call for 1/2 IN bolts. Other than that caveat, the product works great! October 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Easy to install. Use 1/2" galvanized bolts and an impact wrench. Takes minutes to install and drastically strengthens the post to joist connection! Very good product and good price. February 7, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Heavy Duty Holddown This thick steel holddown worked well. Nice and heavy, no defects, fully galvanized. Great performance! February 28, 2012
