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.

I always squeeze the hangers so they are tight against the sides of the joist. Slide them into place and tack them with the built in spurs. Next nail it to the supporting member at four pre-drilled locations and finish it with four nails into the new joist through the angled slots. Done. Solid, long lasting attachment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value We used these hangers in our latest home improvement project. Not only were they great for securing each 2 X 4, but they were also a great value for the money! It was obvious that the additional stability created by these hangers would serve us well through the use of our new deck!
