Prevent Corrosion

Deck-Drive DWP stainless-steel fasteners are recommended for higher-exposure environments or applications

Not only do angles make joints stronger, they also provide more consistent, straight corners. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of angles in various sizes and thicknesses to handle light-duty jobs or projects where a structural connection is needed. Some can be bent (skewed) to match the project. For outdoor projects or those where moisture is present, use our Z-MAX zinc-coated connectors, which provide extra resistance against corrosion (look for a "Z" at the end of the model number).
  • Provide a 90° connection for medium/heavy duty applications
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening
  • Help ensure joints are consistently straight and strong
  • 4 in. Height
  • Made from 12-Gauge steel
  • Z-MAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 1/4 in. x 1-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SDS screws

Questions & Answers


can you install this on the outside corner versus inside?

Asked by JR December 1, 2020

Depends on the engineering behind your application.

Can 2 of these be used as a substitute for a joist hanger?

Asked by hsilva July 7, 2020

I have used these many times on an inside corner but I wouldn’t recommend using them as a standard joist hanger. They have nothing supporting the joist from underneath and I doubt using them in that manor would pass any kind of building code.

do you have this type of l-angle in 6 to 8" long ?

How do you choose between this one and the "18-gauge galvanized steel angle" by the same company?

Asked by tk May 15, 2020

Q 12 gauge will support more weight. if building a shelf, 18 will work. If building a deck, strongly suggest the 12.

Asked by jlwl88 April 20, 2020

Absolutely as long as you use the strong enough fasteners it’ll be the strongest part of the bench

Is this actually 4", or is it for use with nominal 4" lumber?

Asked by Mike April 19, 2020

it's perfect for 4" lumber

The pictures show this as an inside connector. Can they be used as an outside connector? (i.e. ...

Asked by bill April 12, 2020

Probably not. The wholes are not far enough from the corner to allow place 2 pieces of lumber in the corner.

Can these be used with 1/4" thru bolts, and if so how does that affect load bearing?

Asked by Jason September 8, 2019

Yes, this can be used with 1/4" thru bolts.

I need to fasten this to concrete. If I use 1/2 inch diameter and 3 inch length concrete sleeve a...

Asked by Jay July 29, 2019

These angles were designed for using nails in Lumber I’m sure you could probably drill them out but I’m not sure what kind strength you would have after putting that big of holes into it

Can you bend these brackets for a tricky angle?

Asked by Judy June 26, 2019

12 gauge is nearly 1/8 in. and you would find it very difficult to achieve any kind of a tricky bend into. Best.

Excellent value
I used these to strengthen some joists in an old home with a deteriorating ledger board attached to a wooden girder. I was originally going to use LS50 connectors, but they're actually more expensive and much thinner (16 ga vs 0.25 in) and I really liked the sturdiness. These took the bounce right out of the floor in the room I used them under. Home Depot's price is also much lower than I can even get them for from Amazon. Very happy with this purchase.

Have used these for years on many projects. Heavy duty enough for most applications, I use the shorter versions as well. A bit pricey but worth the money. Nice quality.
