Q:What is the teeth height?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Paul, thank you for your question. The Mending Plate is designed for non-structural applications only; not for truss applications. The prongs (teeth) are about 3/8" long to help secure the plate to the wood. Place a wood block over the mending plate and hammer the wood block to embed the prongs. If you have more questions, please reach out to our Customer Service team at (800)999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you! - Stacy

    A:  Hi Eric, this is McKenzie with Simpson Strong-Tie. The Mending Plates are designed for wood-to-wood connections but they are for non-structural applications and are not for truss applications. If you are looking for a structural connection it would be best to reach out to the Engineer of Record for the job to see what he/she specifies. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.​​

      Q:Can these be used with pressure treated wood?
      by|Dec 23, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello DIYDave, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. The MP mending plate comes in a galvanized coating which is a low level of corrosion protection. If these will be used in an interior dry environment then yes it could possibly work depending on what type of pressure treated lumber you have. If it will be used for an exterior environment then i would not recommend it. If you wish to discuss this further please call us at (800) 999-5099. We look forward to speaking with you.

          Plumber did a number on our non-load bearing wall. These are super easy to use. Just hammer it in to add some strength back to damaged/butchered boards
