A: Because there is no “floor” plate to the hanger, I was able to tie in all my angles rafters in my wood shed. The attachment holes are located such that angled rafters posed no problem.
A: Hi ELJames, this is Colin again from Simpson Strongtie. The H1Z hurricane tie can be used to connect a horizontal floor joist to a dropped beam or connect a sloping dimensional 2x (1-1/2") rafter that bears on a horizontal beam or a double 2x top wall plate. The rafter will require a "birds mouth" or seat cut.
