    Q:How is this different / superior to an L bracket?
    by|Jun 7, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Sarge, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. The RTA2Z connects a 2x post to a 2x joist and provides download resistance (an angle would provide lateral load resistance). RTA2Z are often used in wood fences and have a corrosion resistant (ZMAX) finish. We have many different "L" angles so I can't comment on the superiority as we don't know which product we are comparing to the RTA2Z. 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.

        Easy to install and are super strong. I used them to make a sag free wood gate, and they worked very well for that application. My gate is strong and sturdy because I used this product. They are a great price as well.

        Mostly good, but some of them are not bent all the way to 90 degrees, particularly in the inner corner, which can be an issue. Some hammering in a vice can cure that. The screw holes needed to be enlarged in my application also.

        It's an aluminum sign! I needed a piece of aluminum of the same dimensions, but it was out of stock, so now I have a No Parking sign for a chicken coop slide door. It serves the purpose.
