Connectors add greater strength and safety to your project, require fewer nails for installation, and often eliminate the need for toenailing or more complicated traditional construction methods.

If you've never used connectors before, you may be surprised by our many products that make wood frame construction easier for both the weekend carpenter and the professional builder. Read more about connectors basics.

Even if you've used joist hangers, angles, or strap ties before, you may not know about all the other connectors we make for specific applications like post bases and caps, seismic and hurricane anchors, framing anchors and shelf or fence brackets. Fill all nail holes with specified fasteners before loading.
