Product Overview

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° connections and home repair projects
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening alone
  • Help ensure joints are consistently straight and strong
  • Dimensions: 1-1/2 in. x 2 in. x 2-3/4 in.
  • Made from 18-Gauge steel
  • 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

Answer

There is no difference in application or function, other than fasteners and allowable loads are a little different. The A34 is 1 716” x 1 7/16” x 2½” long and is cookie-cut to save material, whereas the A23 is 2” x 1½” x 2¾” and not cookie cut. So the A34 would be more economical since it has less steel. For applications where the connector will be visible, people tend to go towards the A23 for the cleaner look with the square edges. Thank you!

How much weight can this support?

Asked by Im2tata February 5, 2020
1
Answer

When attached to Douglas Fir or Southern Pine, the A23 has an allowable load of 680 lbs. in the F1 direction and 535 lbs. in the F2 direction (use 0.86 x DF/SP allowable loads for Spruce-Pine-Fir or Hem Fir); please see our website or current Wood Construction Connectors catalog for complete information. Thank 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.
