Yes you can because I use them to attach my 2x4 to my picket fence.

Appropriate for lightly sloped side roof?

Asked by Adam June 1, 2020

Answers

what you propose will work. However you should also Cut the joist end at the appropriate angle so that it fits flush against the back of the hanger. That insures that your nails through the sides of the hanger will fully contact the joist.

Can i use this to hang a 2x10 from a 2x8 with the tops flush?

Asked by KitBearington March 29, 2020

Answer

These are only 8 inches long and the bottom set of nail holes are roughly 3/4 inch from the bottom. If you hang it off of a 2x8 ledger board you won't be able to use the bottom set or nail holes. There is another tab above that hole that you could punch a hole in to get another row of nails. It should be structurally sound, but, probably not to code.

No. Exterior work requires galvanize so use Simpson 2 1/2" it does not take away from the strength of the beam. Yes. Interior work You can use a 2" or greater truss screw. This is as close as you can get.

Holds the 2x6 ok, but very difficult to install so that 2x6 is even with end piece. I had to use scrap piece and make pencil Mark's where bracket would go. Even then, I had to remove a couple and start over when it was misaligned.

This joist hanger is a much better choice over the conventional flavor when it is to be exposed in an 'open cover' outside deck or patio, especially when painted prior to installation ... much more pleasing to the eye ... no flange ears
