Questions & Answers

Can this hanger be used to support angled rafters?

Can this hanger be used to support angled rafters?
Asked by: david
Although technically you could rest the tip of the rafter in the joist pocket, I would not recommend it nor do I believe it would be acceptable to a building inspector and pass code. Simpson Strong-Tie makes the LRUZ 18 gauge face-mount rafter hanger that supports angles from 0:12 to 14:12 pitches.and also a LSSJ Field adjustable Jack rafters. I would highly recommend getting the right hanger and not try to make a standard joist hanger fit a rafter.

What type of fastener is recommended, nails or screws, and what size?

Asked by: DickB
Use 3” 10d nails for the diagonal holes and 1-1/2” Teco/Joist Hanger Nails for the other holes. They should really print it right on the hanger that you need 3” nails for the diagonal/shear holes, as us old guys are used to using 1-1/2 nails for years and years....I bet there’s thousands of these being installed incorrectly because people are used to just using 1-1/2”nails ...

Can I use these double shear hangers to secure 2 x 4 stringers on a 4 x 4 fence post?

Asked by: Bob
Bob, I'm sure that a double shear Simpson Strongtie hanger would work but depending on where on the post you want your 2x4 and what type of hanger you are using, there may be a hanger flange to deal with. Typically, 2x4 fence stringers are secured with FB24 which have concealed hanger flanges.

LUS ZMAX Galvanized Face-Mount Joist Hanger for 2x6 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LUS26Z Double Shear Hanger Z-MAX I have been building houses for almost 20 years and I have used many types of Joist Hangers and Simpson Hangers work the best for me. The 2 pieces that jet out at the top (one on each side of the Simpson Hangers) greatly help out to set the hanger and makes it easy to adjust if need be. They make it quick to tack it to the lumber you are planning to nail the hanger to. Once you are happy where you like the hanger, then nail the hanger to the lumber. Then set your 2x6 joint into the Simpson hanger and the 4 side slots are the best I have used to help guide your nails straight through the joint to the lumber you are connecting it to. Makes for a very strong connections and saves on nails. Plus, the hanger is made of Galvanized Steel, so no worries about rust.

I use them all the time.Here is the problem. Home Depot does not have an effective display and product layout to the various Simpson products and the selection process eats up an enormous amount of time. Typically the in store stock of items is not maintained properly. Too bad
