Questions & Answers

What side nails to use on the h2.5 Hurricane ties ?

Asked by: Ducktraylor
They have nails designed for use on the Simpson Strong tie. Off the top of my head they are about 1 1/2 inches long and probably 10d size. Simpson also has screws for these ties.

Will these pass code if used to hang deck stringers?
