How many #9 screws do I need to tie two 11/2 x 6 joists ? Fill all the holes?

Answer

Personally, I would use 4 screws on each half, 8 total per bracket. Check with your local permit office to see what they would require for an inspection.

I want to tie two 2x6 pressure treated boards together on the long 2-inch side. How far apart should I space the ties?

Asked by Eugene May 1, 2019

Answer

We can point you to the allowable load tables for the HTP37Z Tie Plate (https://www.strongtie.com/straightstraps_strapsandties/htp_plate/p/htp), but it would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to determine how many ties are needed and at what spacing to resist the demand loads for the specific application. Thank you!

Do I need to put screws in all of the holes in the plate or can I just use half of the holes. Would that reduce strength

Asked by DIYer September 22, 2018

Answer

Yes you want to use all holes, that’s what give it’s strength.

Can this hold together two 7 ft 2x4 boards? I need to make one long beam to connect at top of Home made pergola.

Answers

Not by itself. Somewhat lengthwise but there will be no strength or support from the top/bottom or sides. Hopefully you're using other means of support. If possible, I'd double the thickness by sandwiching four (4) 2x4s together of different lengths. a 2x4x8' and a 2x4x6' to the same, but opposite. Glue and screw them together to make a 'laminated' beam. Then you won't have a 'joint' per se.
