    A:  I would think so, as I've had 2 appraisals since installing it and it's passed inspection twice. Melissa

    A:  Yes, that's true. But, it's not hard to do, and the parts to do it are not expensive. They can be found at Home Depot, and they have knowledgeable people to advise you.

      A:  Hello, Holdrite water heater restraint model # QS-50-H is City of LA approved, California approved, DSA approved and IAPMO listed. We are unaware of any real estate code that requires restraints to wrap all the way around the water heater. That being said, we do offer a 360° strap that can be used for these applications. Please see Holdrite model # HR-80-360-H (internet # 205893037). If you have additional questions please feel free to contact our technical support department at 877-700-4242. Best Regards,

        A:  Metal strap does not have to go around the water heater, as long as it is properly and securely installed on the studs to hold its heavy weight firmly against the wall preventing it from falling when the earth around it moves or shakes.

          A:  Yes. I had to install a new water heater and straps before my appraiser came over. They passed with him.

          by|Mar 5, 2021

            A:  Yes this is what I had to purchase to put around my water heater and secure the water heater to the wall. I did that myself in a home I was selling and noticed that the plumbers that were setting the water heater in my new home also did that for it to pass inspection. Check with you building department and they will make sure you know how it is done.

              A:  My mother-in-law added earthquake insurance to her homeowners policy through Allstate. She was told the hot water take needed to be secured to the wall. This product got the job done in only a few minutes. You might need a stud finder too to install properly.

                A:  Yes it will

                Q:Will this product fit a 30 gallon tank?

                Answer This Question

                A:  Check out the diameter of your tank. 30 gallon tanks have different diameters. Most new tanks are wider than older due to added insulation inside the tank. Your diameter may not be much different than a 40 gallon tank. The strap can be folded or probably cut to fit.

                by|Dec 22, 2018

                  A:  Yes

                  by|Nov 2, 2022

                    A:  yes

                    by|Feb 26, 2019

                      A:  yes it's adjustable.

                      by|Dec 10, 2019

                        A:  Yes. Drilled holes throughout the length of the strap making it easily adjustable.

                          Answer This Question

                          A:  The purpose of the strapping is to stop tipping during an earthquake. There are two benefits: a clean water supply in the event of disrupted service; and prevention of tank-toppling hazards. Depending on how tight you make the straps, it may also prevent rotation when servicing the anode. The strapping is quite sturdy and adjustable. I built wooden brackets attached to the studs to improve the installation of the straps and reduce the tipping hazard for my existing (natural gas heated) tank.

                            A:  This would not keep the tank for rotating. It is there to keep the tank from tipping during a seismic event.

                            by|Mar 26, 2018

                              A:  It depends on if the back of the tank is touching a two-by-four or the wall when you tightened it. Either way, you should be using an impact drill which would prevent the tank from turning. The weight of the tank should also prevent it from turning.

                              A:  Meant as a safety measure per code to keep tank from tipping over during earthquake and causing gas or electrical hazard or emergency.

                              by|Mar 26, 2018

                                A:  If it's blocked and strapped correctly, yes, but I'd still have help if it's really stuck.

                                by|Mar 3, 2020

                                  A:  It wont hold to to take out the anode, it will keep it from falling over

                                  by|Mar 6, 2021

                                  A:  As I understand it the strap is designed to meet federal safety regulations that require it to hold the tank in place during earthquakes and other natural disasters. That being said, if it is properly installed I don't see how the tank is going to turn without a great deal of effort.

                                  by|Mar 28, 2018

                                    A:  No, won't keep the tank from turning while installing new rods.

                                      Easy to install and assembly around the water heater went without an issue. Space was too tight for larger tools ( like a drill) so i used open end wrenches to install and secure water heater to wall. Great value and quality product.

                                      Great. Easy to use with no complaints. Be sure to buy the right strap for your water heater size. This is good up to 80 gallons. 100 gallons will require a different one, also available at most Home Depots. Be sure to install the two straps at the right heights.
