About This Product

Simpson Strong-Tie connectors make projects easier to build while making them stronger and safer. They are engineered and tested to perform and are manufactured to the highest quality standards. The DJT14Z deck joist tie is designed to attach 2x deck joists to the side of 4x or larger support posts, and it can be installed with either nails or bolts.

Highlights

  • Connects a 2x member (typically a beam) to the side of the post
  • Suitable for nominal 2x4 minimum cross member and nominal 4x4 minimum post
  • Stronger than nails or screws, easier than through-bolting
  • Made from 14-gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 16d common nails or #10 x 2-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws or 5/8 in. Dia machine bolts

A:  Hello Arie, my name is Colin with Simpson Strong-Tie. The Deck Joist Tie (part number DJT14Z) can be installed with eight 0.162"x3-1/2" (16d) galvanized nails or two 5/8" diameter structural quality through bolts commonly called hex-head machine bolts, nuts, and flat washers (not lag screws or carriage bolts) equal to or better than ASTM Standard A307, Grade A. Nuts shall be ASTM A563 Grade A or better. 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.

On our homepage strongtie.com enter DJT14Z in the Search field at the top left. Click on the picture of the Deck Joist Tie and scroll down to the allowable load values and required fasteners (16d nails, SD#10 2-1/2" screws, or 5/8" diameter hex head machine through bolts - but not in combination). 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.​​

            This was used to secure fall boards in a garage loft area in a way that they could be removed if necessary. Worked beautifully for this repurposed use.
