A: Hi JoeW, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. Yes, you can paint this connector, but there are certain recommended steps you'll need to follow. Using your search engine of choice, copy and paste the following link: https://blog.strongtie.com/diy-how-to-spray-paint-metal-connectors -The connectors were painted with Rust-Oleum spray paint and we were pleased with the finished appearance. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. Thank you-Colin
A: No, it is not a hanger, it simple ties two pieces together. Mike
A: 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.
A: In my humble opinion, these Strong Ties are just not the right product. You need to use steel plate to reinforce not the sheet metal used to make these.
A: It sounds as though you are looking for a Header Hanger which we offer, but not for a 2x4 header. Please see the HH4 here on the Home Depot website. Thank you!
