We do not recommend the DJT for below grade applications; there are many variables in relation to soils and we do not have supporting data for this application. Thank you!

will work on 6x6 beam but when you place bolt through 2x10 it will be to low and may require a second bolt through 2x10 above the tie to properly secure the 2x10

Based on your description, its not clear if you are wanting to use the DJT14Z as it is intended to be used. This product is designed to attach 2x deck joists to the side of 4x or larger support posts (please see install pictures on product page). If you are looking for a double 2x12 joist hanger, please see our catalog/website for options. Thank you!

Answer

While we do not have any restrictions against painting our products, we do not have any information/guidelines to provide regarding painting galvanized steel as this is not our area of expertise. You may wish to check further with a paint manufacturer or the American Galvanizers Association for information on painting galvanized steel. Thank you!

Oh, YES! This old lady built a rack to slide her campershell off the truck solo! When my children got me the shell, it took three of them to put it on the truck! But I live alone! I was afraid it would hit the ground and crack if I tried removing it myself to bet a round-bale for the sheep in Winter! Simpson Strong-ties helped me cobble together a SOLID and STRONG rack! No wobble - no "wonder if..." - shell is safe till Spring!

Worked well for my pergola application. Be sure to use 1 1/2 in hanger nails if there is and potential need to reposition the brackets. I drove home 3 1/2 in hot dipped nails in the one i needed to reposition.... it was not pretty. The Strong-Tie worked fine.
