Each tab has 3 nail holes and what appears to be a 1/2" bolt hole. Is the 1/2" hole foe a bolt?

Asked by: Dynamwebz
No. The larger holes are structural in nature, and not meant to be used for bolts. These are designed to be used with 16p nails or #10 structural-connector screws.

Since the bracket itself is made to prevent side to side movement of each piece in relation to the other, I don't see why bolts can't be used through the big hole, as no weight is being borne by them, only shear strength comes into play, and not very much of that... I'm gonna use bolts.

would this work adequately to join 2 4x4's together horizontally for use in a shed base

Asked by: jringo35
Adequately, yes but not much more than that. The only reason I gave this product 5 stars is because it wouldn't let me change it.
