Q:For Pergola, can this be used to add strength when connecting two beams on a single 6x6 post? Each beams will rest about 3 inch on the post.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Nate, this is McKenzie with Simpson Strong-Tie. The APT is made to connect a single, continuous beam to a post providing uplift and lateral load resistance. Although this is not a splice connector, it can be used to reinforce this connection.

    Q:What is the size of the holes? I want to use them with lag screws in a non-structural application and don't like the look of the Simpson screws.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello Josh, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. The only fastener that is approved to be used with the APT T Strap is the Outdoor Accents® SDWS22312DBB structural wood screws inserted through an STN22 hex-head washer. If you use a different fastener we would not have testing to support the loading of APT and it would be outside of our warranty. 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.

                This "T" was used in 12 locations on my deck to strengthen the entire deck understructure. I used 1/2" Carriage bolts and filed out the hole to fit the square section of the bolt so the "T" would stop the bolt from turning in the hole during tightening. I used one "T" on each side of the posts. Tremendous improvement in lateral stability noticed.

                Mail boxes huh - Don't be afraid to expand your horizons folks. I am pushing 62 and found the full line of brackets very handy to build a porch roof project.

                  I've used Simpson Strong-Tie outdoor accents numerous times before and I came back to them again because it's a great product. This time, for a replacement to an aging mailbox. Packaging could be improved to prevent damage to the powder-coating, but that nit-picking. Other than that it's a great system.

                    Used these on our post and beams in our cabin. Strong, sturdy product. Used with the hex washer and screws. Easy to install and make nice accents to the raw lumber. Look great and I don’t worry about the beams/post moving.

                    Used these to attach 6x6 posts on Deck to a 6x12 18 foot beam. Pre-drilled pilot hole for the Outdoor Accents 3-1/2 in. 6-Lobe Washer Head Black Powder-Coat Structural Wood Screw. I also Used the Outdoor Accents Black Powder-Coat Hex-Head Washer which fits into the holes of the T strap and makes for a strong and great looking connection between the post and beam. As this was on the Deck at the back of the house; used one T-Strap on the inside and outside of each post; so the looks from the deck to the yard, and the yard to the deck is the same. These are not as thick as one might see fabricated locally at a metal shop; but they are much better looking than simple straight cuts from say 3/32 or other plate steel. Seem to be more than strong enough for application (I am placing a roof over the deck using the 6x12 beam as a header for the rafters over the deck.
