Product Overview

Joist hangers are designed to provide support underneath the joist, rafter or beam to provide a strong a connection. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a diverse line of hangers to handle almost any application with top flange, concealed flange and field skewable and slopeable options. LSU joist hangers connect a joist or rafter to the header, sloped up or down, and skewed right or left, up to 45 degrees.

  • Product is preferable to similar connectors because of easier installation, higher loads, and lower installed cost
  • Attach the sloped joist at both ends so that the horizontal force developed by the slope is fully supported by the supporting members
  • Adjustments can be made in the field
  • Joist Width: 1-1/2 in.
  • Made from 18-Gauge steel
  • Galvanized for extra corrosion resistance
  • Install with 10d common and 10d x 1-1/2 in. nails

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Bob,
Possibly...
Based on the size, the LSU26 can be used with a 2x8 (it is recommended the hanger height be at least 60% of the joist height for stability), but the demand load will need to be calculated to confirm if the hanger has adequate capacity.
The LSSU28 may be another option.
Thank you!

Answer: 
The LSU26 can be skewed left or right to 45 degrees and/or sloped up or down 45 degrees (0 degrees would be a standard, no slope horizontal joist). Thank you!

Answer: 
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" Read More

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Uwning Frame Joist Hanger Great for installation of awning framing. Had my custom preframe up and uniformed in minutes. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joist hangers The perfect place to get allyour needs when making a deck. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect For Deck Steps Used to "hang" stair stringers from a deck. Worked great! August 18, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid anchor 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. April 15, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Served its purpose This is a handy hanger. It works well for the purpose it is designed for. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed to finish the job! 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. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Necessity Easy to adjust, a must for stair stringers, would suggest screws vs nails. August 5, 2014
