It is for a notch that someone cut out can they be used to help support that area

Asked by Danny April 22, 2019

Answer

The TP is a non-load rated, miscellaneous connector that can be used in a variety of applications, but it would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to evaluate when using for structural applications. I'm not clear on the specific application, but the RPS strap tie meets code requirements for repair of wood members notched during installation of plumbing and electrical and the CTS218 repairs wood members (top plates, studs and trusses) and handles both tension and compression loads. It would be up to the Designer/EofR to specify the appropriate solution. Thank you!

Can i use these on a support beam in the ceilimg somebody cut it and trying to put wood in that hole and use this to hold it together

Answer

Can be used to mend together a break, crack, cut, end joint, etc. Should not be used as the primary hold for a weight bearing wall/opening. It's for additional, not primary support.

should a nail/screw be used in every hole of a TP57 tie plate when butting 2 pieces of wood together

No, I don’t ever use all the holes. They are there to allow a lot of options. You have to make a judgment call on how many to use. In my opinion using all of them would weaken the wood, too much. I use screws, not nails.
