A: Hello Bapley, this is McKenzie with Simpson Strong-Tie. The APVT6 could potentially be used in your application. Be aware that your beam measures 4.5" and your post measures 5.5", so the beam would need to be installed flush to one side of the post, and only one APVT6 could be installed. Please compare the load values of the BSC2-3/6 with the APVT6 in the following links: https://www.strongtie.com/onepiecepostcaps_postcaps/bcs_cap/p/bcs#LoadTables https://www.strongtie.com/avantcollection_outdooraccents/apvt_strap/p/apvt#LoadTables
A: Shaun - The APVT6 requires the Outdoor Accents SDWS22312DBB structural wood screws inserted through an STN22 washer. Fasteners are sold separately. Thank you!
A: The APVT6 is the largest T Strap of this type. It would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. Thank you!
