LTT/HTT Tension Ties


Installation

Connector-Anchor Selector Web App

Tension ties offer a solution for resisting tension loads that is fastened with nails. The entire line of tension ties has been tested and evaluated to the requirements of AC155.

The HTT4 and HTT5 are the latest generation of tension ties. They feature an optimized nailing pattern which results in better performance with less deflection. Designed to meet new code standards, the HTT4 and HTT5 offer higher loads than their predecessors.

The LTT19 Light Tension Tie is designed for 2x joists or purlins and the LTT20B is for nail- or bolt-on applications. The 3" nail spacing makes the LTT20B suitable for wood I-joists with 10dx1 1/2. The LTTI31 is designed for wood chord open web truss attachments to concrete or masonry walls and may also be installed vertically on a minimum 2x6 stud.

Material: See table.

Finish: Galvanized. May be ordered HDG; contact Simpson Strong-Tie.

Installation:


For tension ties, per ASTM test standards, anchor bolt nut should be finger-tight plus 1/3 to 1/2 turn with a hand wrench, with consideration given to possible future wood shrinkage. Care should be taken to not over-torque the nut. Impact wrenches should not be used.

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.
Table
  1. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake load durations with no further increase allowed; reduce where other load durations govern.
  2. Post design by Specifier. Tabulated loads are based on minimum 3" x 3 1/2" (2-2x4) post (in 3 1/2" wall). Post may consist of multiple members provided they are connected independently of the holdown fasteners. See Post Capacities for common post allowable loads.
  3. A standard cut washer is required under anchor nut for LTT19 and LTT20B when using 1/2" or 5/8" anchor bolts. No additional washer is required when using a 3/4" anchor bolt.
  4. Deflection at Highest Allowable Tension Load includes fastener slip holdown deformation, and anchor bolt elongation for holdowns installed up to 4 1/2" above top of concrete. HTT4 and HTT5 may be installed raised up to 18" above top of concrete with no load reduction provided that additional elongation of the anchor rod is accounted for.
  5. If the base of the LTTI31 is installed flush with a concrete or masonry wall, then the allowable load is 2285 lbs.
  6. Allowable tension load for HTT5 with a bearing plate washer BP5/8-2 (sold separately) installed in the seat of the holdown is 5295 for DF/SP and 4555 for SPF/HF.
  7. HTT5KT is sold as a kit with the holdown, BP 5/8-2 bearing plate washer and 26-SD #10x2 1/2 screws.
  8. Structural composite lumber columns have sides that show either the wide face or the edges of the lumber strands/veneers. Values in the tables reflect installation into the wide face. See technical bulletin T-C-SCLCLM for values on the narrow face (edge).
  9. HTT4 with SD #10x1 1/2 screws achieves full load on a single 2x6 stud or joist.
  10. FASTENERS: 10dx1 1/2= 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long,
    10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long,
    16dx2 1/2= 0.162" dia. x 2 1/2" long,
    SD #10x2 1/2 = 0.161" dia. x 2 1/2",
    SD #10x1 1/2 = 0.161" dia. x 1 1/2".
