About This Product

The CCQ is designed to provide strong column-beam connections in wood construction. The seat of the column cap provides an additional surface area of bearing that extends beyond each side of the column. The extended bearing surface helps distribute the load from the beam and provide support for the connection. The CCQ uses Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws for fast installation and to attach to a greater net section area of the column than a bolt attachment normally entails.


  • The SDS screws provide a lower profile than standard through bolts
  • Certified welds for confidence in strength and loading
  • Uplift loads have been increased for earthquake or wind loading
  • Diamond holes for temporary fastening
  • Nominal beam width: 6x
  • Nominal post size: 4x
  • Made from 7-Gauge steel
  • Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint finish
  • Install with 1/4 in. x 2-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (included)

    Q:Can the CCQ be used with a 6x6 post and triple 2x6 that will meet another triple 2x6 on the post? I have a very long span that requires me to join beams. Any other hardware I should use on the ends?

    A:  Hello Zelda, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. It sounds like you have a splice condition or maybe you need an ECCLQ. ECCLQ can be used at the end to join two beams together that are perpendicular to each other and sitting on a post. If you wish to discuss this further please call us at (800) 999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.

      A:  Hi Josh, this is Ricardo with Simpson Strong-Tie. The CCQ66 is for 6x dimensional/nominal lumber. If you have rough sawn lumber closer to 6", you can special order the column caps to your specific dimensions. Our Customer Service team is available to talk with you directly and take you through a step-by-step solution. Please call us at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.​

        A:  This is nominal lumber both beam and post.

          A:  The CCQ4.62-5.50SDS is sized for a triple 2x beam (4 1/2" combined); minimum of 7" depth. Thank you!

          by|Apr 17, 2020

            A:  You use three 2x6s, or 2x8s, or 2x10s, or 2x12s -- glued and screwed together to make a glulam beam. The actual size of the triple 2x glulam will be 4.5 inches wide (1.5" width x each of the three 2x boards). If you're going to use a solid beam, that'll require a different column cap that accomodates the larger size.

              Worked perfectly for my needs. For my particular project being a hammock frame, I needed to provide two 5/8 inch bolt holes. This strong tie is indeed very strong but I would have liked a lower price point.
