    Q:Can Simpson #9 x 1-1/2 SD Screws be used instead of 10d nails in the (4) angled 'joist to hanger' connection holes in a LUS ZMAX 2 x 10 Face-Mount Joist Hanger?

    Answer This Question

    A:  I believe it will work. #9 screws are thin enough for the 10d holes.   Depending on your building codes and if your project is inspected, I’d confirm with a local builder.  There should be several around the lumber dept at HD who will give you a straight answer.

      A:  Hello Mike, this is Ricardo. The 1 1/2" screw does not allow for full penetration through the joist and into the header and therefore will not satisfy the requirements for the shear nailing aspects of the hanger. We would suggest to use the #9 x 2 1/2" SD screw instead. The load values that are associated with the SD Connector Screw can be found on our website at this link. https://www.strongtie.com/facemounthangersssl_solidsawnlumberconnector/lus_hanger/p/lus If you have any questions, please reach out to our Technical Support team at (800)999-5099. Hope you have a great day.

        A:  Go to the Simpson Strong website. They publish all of the spécifications for their hardware to meet code, including choice of SS fasteners, Do not rely upon 3rd party information.

            Q:Should 1.5 inch 10d nails installed to deck ledger be removed and replaced by 3 inch nails (or 2.5 inch SD connector screws) while keeping 3 inch nails at double shear location of LUS210Z as is? Can we mix and match nails and screws?

            Answer This Question

            A:  Hello Newbie2this, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. We would not recommend mixing nails and screws. Generally for a 2x ledger we would recommend using 1.5" nails or screws into the ledger. For example, if you were to only use SD screws then (8) SD #9 x 1 1/2" into the ledger and (4) SD #9 x 2 1/2" screws would be used into the joist. If you have any questions please call us at (800) 999-5099. we look forward to speaking with you.

              Affordable and Sturdy
              Bought it while planning to buil a riser for my theater. Because of the load and type of lumber I was using, I made the right choice. They are sturdy, strong, durable and the opposite flush face has pointy shape that can stick into the wood and two other holes to permanently hold the hoizontal lumber.

                These hangers were used for my porch and they were very easy to use. The tabs are nice as they are used to hold the piece into place. Just make sure to align everything and it works as intended. Its been 3 years since my deck install and it still holds steady.

                    My porch broke in a section and so after inspecting i saw the problem was not just in one spot but growing all over. If I had not gotten this product and fixed the problem, My entire porch would have completely collapsed - it would not have made it through this summer, and definitely not the winter. A complete Porch Replacement would have cost probably 15-20k. After installing about 35 of these hangers, i predict the life of my porch just got extended to another 10 years. Thanks You Home Depot.

                    Just finished redoing the dock deck and it needed new joist hangers. Easy to use and super strong for the job and they last a long time. We also use these for all of the Veteran Home Repair projects we do thanks to the generosity of the Home Depot Foundation.
