Product Overview

The DTT2Z is a safe, cost-effective way to attach deck-railing posts to the deck framing for stronger, safer railings. Because the post is tied back into the deck joists, rather than to the rim joist alone, the connection is stronger than typical through-bolt installations. The DTT2Z is also ideal for guardrail-post connections and lateral-load connections between the deck and house.
  • Suitable for lighter duty holdown applications on single or double 2x posts
  • Ties the guardrail post into deck framing
  • Stronger and safer than nails, lag screws or bolts
  • Ties the deck into the house for a stronger, safer ledger connection
  • Helps prevent a common type of deck failure
  • Installs easily with Strong-Drive SDS screws (included)
  • Made from 14-Gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Quantity: 2
  • Install with 1/4 in. x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (included) and 1/2 in. machine or anchor bolt

They worked well. Easy to put in. I was a few short so I went to local store and found some similar. They were about the same price and seemed like they were stouter.

First of all this kit can be used in various situation besides just it's direct purpose as a deck tie. Evening is of very good quality, nicely packaged. The best part is that this kit is more cost effective compared to buying all parts separately, also price is lower than at the lumber yard. Just keep in mind that you would have to purchase a threaded rod and hex nuts separately if you plan to use it as deck tension tie.

Good, but Interference with Joist Hangers
Used these to support 42" railing posts on 2x10 framing. You have to modify the install slightly for 36" vs 42" railing (see L-C-GRDRLPST4215). The problem we had was the instructions mention nothing about interference from the joist hangers. The bolt would go through a substantial portion of the hanger! So we nailed on a 1x board between the joist and the tension tie to space it out far enough. Is it as strong? I hope so!
