Questions & Answers

Can the hanger be bent to a 90 degree angle

Will the Simpson Strong-Tie 2x6 adjustable joist hanger (LSU26) work for (see below)

attaching a 2x8 floor joist on a 22.5° skew? (0 degree pitch)
Asked by: Bob
If you mean, 22.5 degrees yaw then no. The joist will bend up and down vertically, which is what I think you mean by pitch. It will not bend in the horizontal direction without severe deformation of the hanger and then I would not trust the safety of that connection.

LSU joist hanger to connect a support sloped down, and skewed right or left, up to 45 degrees.

I would like to use the LSU joist hanger to fix a 2x6 beam as support for a tree house as shown in the picture.The beam is skewed 45 and sloped down. The joist hanger located in detail A Will it do the job? What size of screws are needed? (i prefer using screws over nails in this case)
Asked by: YG
It would be up to the Designer to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. We can provide information on the connector (i.e. required fasteners, allowable loads, material, etc.), but cannot say if it is adequate for your connection. The LSU26 is only rated for installation with nails: a quantity of 6 - 10d common nails (0.148" diameter x 3" long) to the face and a quantity of 5 - 10dx1 1/2" nails to the joist. Please visit our website or catalog for complete details on this hanger. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing since sliced bread 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.
