Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LUS26Z Double Shear Hanger Z-MAX I have been building houses for almost 20 years and I have used many types of Joist Hangers and Simpson Hangers work the best for me. The 2 pieces that jet out at the top (one on each side of the Simpson Hangers) greatly help out to set the hanger and makes it easy to adjust if need be. They make it quick to tack it to the lumber you are planning to nail the hanger to. Once you are happy where you like the hanger, then nail the hanger to the lumber. Then set your 2x6 joint into the Simpson hanger and the 4 side slots are the best I have used to help guide your nails straight through the joint to the lumber you are connecting it to. Makes for a very strong connections and saves on nails. Plus, the hanger is made of Galvanized Steel, so no worries about rust. October 15, 2009
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hanger worked I bought 4 hangers recently to help hang stringers for stairs on my deck, worked as advertised. Supporting the steps & stringer. June 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joist Hangers Joist hanger's were ready when I came in to pick up. They worked well and I would recommend them to anyone. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value We used these hangers in our latest home improvement project. Not only were they great for securing each 2 X 4, but they were also a great value for the money! It was obvious that the additional stability created by these hangers would serve us well through the use of our new deck! April 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good hangers. I have been using hangers in construction projects for many years and these are as good as anything that Simpson puts out. I was looking for normal LU26 hangers which were not in the store so I got these. I wasn't sure about the angle of the nail going from the joist to the beam as it is not 90 degrees like an LU26 is. The angle is more of a 45 which is what you would get with a toe nail. July 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy product easy installation and helps when aligning joists and cross nailing guides ensure positive attachment. September 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent hangers Ordered a large quantity online. Delivered within promised time frame. A couple were not properly formed and had to be re-shaped - easily done. August 27, 2013
