        Q:can this be used to frame roof rafters
        by|Oct 13, 2017

        Answer This Question

        A:  According to Simpson, these are not meant to be used in structural applications such as roof rafters or trusses. The company does make a plate designed for your needs, but unfortunately they are not sold to the general public.

        by|Nov 14, 2022

        A:  No, these are not wide or long enough to build a proper roof rafter. You would need to use a 3"X6". If you do use these for rafters just make sure you support the bottoms with a 2x6 so they are not holding the weight of the roof.

            A:  The MP Mending Plates are for non-structural applications only; not for truss applications. They are not tested/load rated. Thank you!

              A:  I would use a little larger style for roof rafters that they offer.

              This was the first time I used this product and was not impressed. I thought it would be easier and faster to apply these items. But they were just a pain and I stopped using them and adapted another method of joining.

              Assembled shed trusses with these mending plates. Installed easily with a 5lb dead blow hammer.

              The plates worked well for assembling a sliding door frame for my barn. It took a 3# drilling hammer to fasten it properly, though. Framing hammers won’t fasten these plates properly. Good product.

              Just what was needed to frame around and exhaust fan in the workshop. Strengthened everything up nicely
