Answer: 
Chris -
The PF26 hanger may be a good option, but it requires 10d common nails which are 3" long so it will depend on the ledger size.
If you are using a 2x ledger, the LUS26 may be a better option using 10dx1 1/2" nails to the ledger and 10d common nails for the double shear joist nailing (do NOT use short nails here). If higher capacity is needed, the HUS26 uses the same fasteners, but is a heavier Read More

Answer: 
Hello this is Tangelo from the Home Depot Community! Yes, the PF26 does an excellent job of aligning the 2x6, and the tabs help to hold it in place until you nailed it. I hope this helps, if you have any more questions you can find me on our website at community.homedepot.com

Answer: 
The third review is correct (though it is minimal and would be unnoticeable in the illustration). The hanger height is 5.3125" from the top of the seat to the underside of the top flange with a tolerance of +0 and -1/16”, the top flange is 18 gauge so approximately 3/64" thick (0.046875"). The National Design Specification (NDS) lists a 2x6 as measuring 1.5” x 5.5” when dry. Based on these dimensions, Read More

The National Design Specification (NDS) lists a 2x6 as measuring 1.5” x 5.5” when dry. Based on these dimensions, the 2x6 would protrude 0.078125” to 0.140625” above the top flange (taking into account the hanger height tolerance). Note: Wood shrinks and expands as it loses and gains moisture, particularly perpendicular to its grain. (This may or may not be the issue in the first two reviews.) Simpson Strong-Tie manufactures products to fit common dry lumber dimensions. Thank you! Read Less

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works perfectly as designed The previous 2 reviewers don't recognize that the joist is supposed to extend to just above the top flanges so that they don't get in the way of the subfloor. The hangers work perfectly as designed. Simpson hangers are the standard of the industry. October 14, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't fit 2x6!! Got this product thinking I wouldn't have to be too precise when laying in the frame for my deck. But the 2x6's stuck above the bracket by a good 1/4". I had to bend the ears flat, secure the 2x6 at the proper level then bend the ears around the frame. The extra price was to make the job easier and it ended up being harder. August 21, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't fit Thought It would be easier but as I'm having the same problem as the review before. The 2x6's dont fit flush with the frame when using these September 1, 2013
