Questions & Answers

Can these be used to connect 6x6 post to double 2x10 beam

Asked by: Jmig
Yes, you use two of them and fasten with 10D nails, 16 per bracket. The other bracket you should look at is the AC6, which is nailed with 16D nails and is appreciably stronger. Both the AC6 and LPCZ brackets need to be installed in pairs across the beam, so buy 2 per post.

Is LPC6Z sold as a pair or is it only 1 side?

Asked by: Bret
No, yes. You will need to buy 2 to have a pair. The photo is correct. All Simpson products are sold as single units, even if you need 2 per application.

I need to attach a double 2x10 beam to a concrete footing. Could I bend the small tabs out 90 degrees and then embed this in concrete? Any better ideas? I need something that is has a 3 iinch channel. I would use 2 per footing.
Asked by: BrianK
We can only support our products as designed/tested; the LPC is rated for wood-to-wood applications. Also, we do not support field modified products. Please see the ABU46Z at the follwoing link (scroll down to "Beam Installation") for a possible option: https://www.strongtie.com/retrofitpostbases_postbases/aba-abu-abw_productgroup_wcc/p/aba.abu.abw#LoadTables.
