A: Hi Oldsailor65, thank you for your message. This is Ricardo with Simpson Strong-Tie. The only fastener options for this connector are 0.148 x 1-1/2 or SD9112. 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
A: I used #10 wood screws for mine.
A: I use Simpson #9 x 1-1/2" SD Connector Screws. They are galvanized and exterior grade. They can usually be found in the store immediately adjacent to the gusset angles.
A: If you intend to use this to create a floating seat then no, it will not work. If you want to use this to support the seat so it is "hanging" on the connector then, yes it will work. The strength really comes down to the screws in this case and if they havea good "bite" in the lumber.
A: It should carry the loads without any problem. Would recommend a deck-type screw or wood screw; not a drywall screw.
A: Install with 10d common nails or #9 x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws
A: I used Simpson 10d 1-1/2" hot-dip galvanized deck nails without any problems
