Frequently Bought Together

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.

  • This 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
  • Z-MAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 10d common and 10d x 1-1/2 in. nails

Hello, we just bought this product because we've come to a point in our patio cover where there 2 angles, (they might be close to 45 degree angles, not quite sure). We tried looking up more info on how to adjust this product the way we need. Are there any tips? Tutorials available?

Thank you.

The Simpson ZMAX hangers are pretty close to the angle to which they are design to hold two pieces of beam wood. The best way to adjust the hanger to fit your angle beam attachment is to cut the beam angle that will attach to the straight beam. If the hanger needs to be more acute to the straight beam attach hanger to the straight beam location and nail into place on straight beam. Take a scrap piece of Read More
The Simpson ZMAX hangers are pretty close to the angle to which they are design to hold two pieces of beam wood. The best way to adjust the hanger to fit your angle beam attachment is to cut the beam angle that will attach to the straight beam. If the hanger needs to be more acute to the straight beam attach hanger to the straight beam location and nail into place on straight beam. Take a scrap piece of wood and place into hanger and tap scrap wood to close the acute angle to match angle beam cut. Then nail cut beam into place. To open the acute angle of hanger we use two Sheet Metal offset angle Visegrip pliers made of steel. Place the pliers in the acute angle slot to as close to the angle point as possible clamp down and pry apart to the desired angle needed. On the obtuse angle attach both pliers and close the angle to the desire position. Read Less

Answer: 
If you are still in need of an answer to this question since 2012 you are a more patient person than I would be. The hanger you have is adjustable by bending the"tail" section to the needed angle then attatching to the board at the tail section and at the faceplate will hold the chosen angle.

Answer: 
The hanger can be adjust to the angle of the board - mount it to the header first then pound the center nail under the bracket on the downward angle piece- or better yet use clamps like I did and everything stays in place while you hammer away

Answer: 
Any weather resistant screw, galvanized or weather coated, will do the job. The Star Flat-Head Wood Deck Screws work the best because they tend not to strip out as easily as Phillips head screws. Be sure to use the appropriate length for your work and not over penetrate the material with exposed screw points.

Answer: 
#9 1-1/2 in. External Hex Flange Hex-Head Structural-Connector Screw (100-Pack)
They are usually located in the same area as the hangers. They work great and are easier to install than the nails. If you can't locate them in your store just ask at the contractors desk.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stair Hanger I was able to use this product to secure stairs that my builder did not properly instal August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This product was used for building a deck. It worked just as it should have and I was very happy with the product and results. The deck looks awesome and I'm very confident it will last for many, many years to come with the help of this joist hanger. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile Joist rafter hanger I know this is called a joist hanger but it works great as a rafter hanger as well. This is the second shedroof that I have used these hangers on and they are great for adjusting to the pitch of the shed roof and give both vertical and horizontal support. They are a breeze to install with the new screws to attach no more roughly galvanized nail to try to force through a too small hole. Using these hangers gives loads of holes to attach to both the rafter or joist and to the header without spliting the boards out, a real plus. May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joist Hanger Way too expensive. Funny that this hanger is over 6 bucks when the hanger for a straight joist is only .75 cents! Not that much different metal.. same thickness. Is it really that hard to manufacture these versus the straight hangers? Function was fine. Hard to get over the price. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great item Worked just like I needed it to. I built some stairs and it sure came in handy June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product The installation and use of the hangers is exceptional! The beauty of this product is you only have to buy one type as it works on multiple angles thus saving time and aggravation. June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good design I used these to fasten roof rafters to the side of my garage for a wood shed. They made the installation quite easy and very secure. I liked the fact that I could bend them according to the slope of the roof because I was unable to use the usual 4/12 pitch. my only complaint was the price. It seemed a little high compared to other rafter/joist brackets, especially when I had to purchase 12 of them. August 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Hanger makes installing stair risers a snap! really secure stepping! May 10, 2016
