These connectors worked great - no need to toenail rafters or cut identical bird's mouth notches on each rafter. Be aware that these raise the height of the roof, and that 2x4 soffits work work, as these connectors raise the rafters off the top plate. (I custom cut leftover 2x6's I had for my soffits.)

Awesome product. Work with 2X4 and made it very easy to make my pitch roof without notching. This was used for a roof on a fort that I made for my son.
