I've used these "joist" hangers for about 30 years. But I mostly use them as rafter hangers, not joist hangers.
If you are building a simple house/cottage/shed/garage with a gable roof, and a 3/12 or 4/12 roof pitch (these are the common ones), then you nail these to your ridge beam BEFORE you put the ridge beam up in place.
Just measure out for 16" on center ("OC") or 24 inch OC, depending on your frame design. After the ridge beam is up and in place, with these hangers attached, you cut the ends of your 2x6 rafters (these will even work with 2x8 rafters) at a slight angle (about 22.5 deg. for 3/12) and your rafters will just drop into place like a foot into a comfortable shoe.
Make sure the rafter is pushed up against the ridge beam, then nail it into the hanger on both sides. Then your upper end of the rafter is done. Toe-nail it onto you cap plate on the wall at the other end, then trim the end with a skilsaw to suit your design.
I've built about 15 basic houses this way. It would make building a garage or shed pretty easy as well.

I was just building a quick A-Frame roof over a fish pond. The hanger worked well. It has many holes that can be used to anchor the Joist hanger. That great because you need to use short screws (1" or less) to anchor it to the 2X4/6/8's and not have them poke out.

This is a handy hanger. It works well for the purpose it is designed for.

Never seem to foresee all the contingencies involved with a DIY project. Came up a couple short of having them all. Home Depot to the resque.

Easy to adjust, a must for stair stringers, would suggest screws vs nails.
