Product Overview

Not only do angles make joints stronger, they also provide more consistent, straight corners. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of angles in various sizes and thicknesses to handle light-duty jobs or projects where a structural connection is needed. Some can be bent (skewed) to match the project. For outdoor projects or those where moisture is present, use our ZMAX zinc-coated connectors, which provide extra resistance against corrosion (look for a "Z" at the end of the model number).
  • Provides a strong 90° connection without 45° cuts or angled fastening
  • Fastens wood members on two sides, eliminating the need for angle bracing
  • Ideal for gates, fences or any project where a 90° connection is needed
  • Made from 16-Gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with SD 8 in. x 1.25 in. strong-drive screws

No, it is not a hanger, it simple ties two pieces together. Mike

I have used these for just that purpose. If the LVL is already supported with jack studs, then these used to just hold the jack studs to the LVL is fine. No weight is on them, they just prevent the LVL from sliding out of the pocket.

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.
