Answer: 
The demand for these "connectors of the Gods" is not high enough. Until more people discover the RTC series of brackets and all their mythical properties, I fear that these will be found in store only hit or miss and online.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic product When I couldn't find pre-made shelving in the dimensions I needed for my workshop, I made some with this product. They were easy to use, and the result is incredibly strong and stable. I will be using them again for sure. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for Building A Rock Solid Workbench I used 8 of these to build a 48x96 workbench with a bottom shelf. This thing is a tank! These made the workbench incredibly easy and efficient to build. Sure, it takes a lot of screws (I believe 22 PER tie), but once it is together it is not going to budge. What I really like about these is that they have a tendency to self-square. Even if things are a bit off kilter to begin with, once you put in those last 2-4 screws, it suddenly 'tightens up' and pulls everything into place. If I ever need to build anything again, I will find a way to incorporate these. April 2, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by time saver! made an awesome workbench from this product.very sturdy only took an afternoon.buy simpson screws as well,worth the money. February 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great addition for building I used these ties to build a work bench. When I went to nail the top, the bench was so SOLID it was like driving into hard wood instead of fir or pine. I am now a fan. If you use these ties, make sure you buy PLENTY of screws. October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong is right! Great product; made squaring up my workbench frame easy and it is very sturdy. Plan to have lots of screws on hand; each of these RTC42 braces require 22 screws. August 5, 2014
