Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use these double shear hangers to secure 2 x 4 stringers on a 4 x 4 fence post?

Asked by: Anonymous
Bob, I'm sure that a double shear Simpson Strongtie hanger would work but depending on where on the post you want your 2x4 and what type of hanger you are using, there may be a hanger flange to deal with. Typically, 2x4 fence stringers are secured with FB24 which have concealed hanger flanges.

What type of fastener is recommended, nails or screws, and what size?

Asked by: DickB
1-1/2" Tico nails are not sufficient. The shear rating is based on the nails going in at and angle through the joist and into the header. 10D 3" is the minimum for the ones through the joist. Check the spec sheet link. Now the nails attaching the hangar to the beam may be able to use the 1-1/2" Tico nails, but that is not what the spec sheet says. These are not the old style Simpson hangars we used to use tico's on all the holes.

Can you use these hangers with ruff cut lumber that is a full 2" wide, unlike dimensional lumber that is only 1 1/2" wide?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, I believe it works better on rough cut wood.

Is there a box price for the LUS26Z joist hanger?

I need more than 100 which is the number in a box.
Asked by: Anonymous
Best bet for any volume pricing is to call or email the contractors desk at your local store and ask them.

Z-MAX 2 in. x 6 in. Galvanized Double Shear Face Mount Joist Hanger is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.

To attach these I used Deckmate #9 3 inch screws until I ran out, then used Deckmate #9 2 1/2 screws (I purchased 25 lbs of these for attaching all of the decking boards). The quality from one to the next was consistent and everything feels incredibly secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

We bought these to reinforce the basement stair's landing in our 60-year-old house. We jacked the 2x6s back up to where they should go, and slid these over them. Be sure to use the right kind of nail or structural screw.
