Customer Questions & Answers

can you connect a deck beam to a 4x4 post with this tie?

Asked by: Anonymous
Billy, The RTU2 is a miscellaneous connector generally used in non-structural, DIY-type projects; it is not tested/load rated and the fasteners used to attach this product are for dry, interior and non-corrosive environments only. It would be up to the Designer to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. Based on the question, it appears you have a 2x horizontal member attaching to the face of a 4x4 post. If it is a 2x6, 2x8, 2x10 or 2x12, the LUCZ may be an option for this attachment (to be confirmed by the Designer): Thank you!
