LTP4/LTP5/A34/A35 Framing Angles and Plates


Installation

View step-by-step installation instructions

The larger LTP5 spans subfloor at the top of the blocking or rim joist. The embossments enhance performance.

The LTP4 Lateral Tie Plate transfers shear forces for top plate-to-rim joist or blocking connections. Nail holes are spaced to prevent wood splitting for single and double top plate applications. May be installed over plywood sheathing.

The A35 anchor's exclusive bending slot allows instant, accurate field bends for all two- and three-way ties. Balanced, completely reversible design permits the A35 to secure a great variety of connections.

Material: LTP4/LTP5—20 gauge; all others—18 gauge; models designated SS are stainless steel

Finish: Galvanized; SS uncoated. Some products available in ZMAX® coating; see Corrosion Information.

Additional Corrosion Protection

These products are available with additional corrosion protection. Additional products on this page may also be available with this option, check with Simpson Strong-Tie for details.

These models are approved for installation with the Strong-Drive SD Structural-Connector screw.
See the load values below.
Table
  1. Allowable loads are for one anchor. When anchors are installed on each side of the joist, the minimum joist thickness is 3".
  2. Some illustrations show connections that could cause cross-grain tension or bending of the wood during loading if not reinforced sufficiently. In this case, mechanical reinforcement should be considered.
  3. LTP4 can be installed over 3/8" wood structural panel sheathing with 8dx1 1/2" nails and achieve 0.72 of the listed load, or over 1/2" and achieve 0.64 of the listed load. 8d commons will achieve 100% load.
  4. The LTP5 may be installed over wood structural panel sheathing up to 1/2" thick using 8dx 1/2" nails with no reduction in load.
  5. Connectors are required on both sides to achieve F2 loads in both directions.
  6. NAILS: 8dx1 1/2 = 0.131" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
