Product Details

Not only do angles make joints stronger, they also provide more consistent, straight corners. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of angles in various sizes and thicknesses to handle light-duty jobs or projects where a structural connection is needed. Some can be bent (skewed) to match the project. For outdoor projects or those where moisture is present, use our ZMAX zinc-coated connectors, which provide extra resistance against corrosion (look for a "Z" at the end of the model number).
  • Versatile connector for various 90-degree connections and home repair projects
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening alone
  • Help ensure joints are consistently straight and strong
  • Made from 18-gauge steel
  • Galvanized (G90) for extra corrosion resistance
  • Galvanized for extra corrosion resistance
  • Install with 10d x 1-1/2 in. nails or #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws

      A:  Depending on what you are anchoring, we use a lot of this size and type of corner brace, we use from 1-1/4 inch number 6 screw, up to a 3 inch number 8 screw, load limit, material thickness will determine the screw size, we think safety first if we are going to work on top of the structure we are building with these corner braces.

                A:  Hello Grant, this is McKenzie with Simpson Strong-Tie. The A23 angle is a rigid angle connector with great lateral load resistance in and out of plane (F1 & F2). Depending on the forces you're trying to resist, the A23 could help to reinforce your connection. Good luck with your project!

                      A:  Yes.  I’ve also used outdoor spray paint.

                        A:  Hello bill, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. I believe the part you are describing is the A23 listed on page 291 in the 2021-2023 Wood Construction Connectors catalog. These along with most of our metal connectors can be painted. On strongtie.com we have a blog post on painting our connectors. Copy and paste this website: https://blog.strongtie.com/diy-how-to-spray-paint-metal-connectors/ to your browser. It provides good information on painting our connectors. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.​​

                                I will be returning these as I noticed the same ones I installed on my previous fence line 2 years ago are having a serious rusting and deterioration problem. I had used these as a connection on the underside of a continuous horizontal (laid flat) top cap onto my posts using stainless fasteners. I will be having someone making me some out of copper since “Simpson” and”Home Depot” can’t seem to have or stock adequate product solutions.
