DTT tension ties are safe, cost-effective connectors designed to meet or exceed code requirements for deck construction. These versatile DTT connectors are also load-rated as a holdown for light-duty shearwalls and braced-wall panel applications.
For new construction or to make an existing current deck code-compliant, the DTT1Z can be used as a tension-tie to satisfy the 2015 IRC provision for a 750 lb. lateral load connection to the house at four locations per deck. This code detail permits the lateral connection from the deck joists to be made to top plates, studs or headers within the supporting structure, which eliminates the need to access to the floor joists inside the home. The DTT1Z is available in a kit (DTT1Z-KT) that includes (4) DTT1Z connectors, (4) Strong-Drive® SDWH Timber-Hex HDG screws and (26) SD #9 x 1 1/2" screws.
The DTT1Z fastens to the narrow or wide face of a single 2x with Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive SD Connector screws or nails and accepts a 3/8" machine bolt, anchor bolt or lag screw (washer required) or can be installed with the Strong-Drive SDWH Timber-Hex HDG screw with an integral washer.
The DTT2 can be used to satisfy the IRC provision for a 1,500 lb. lateral load connection at two locations per deck. Additionally, the DTT2 has been tested and evaluated in deck guardrail post applications to resist the code-specified lateral forces at the top of railing assemblies. The DTT2 is also available with longer 2 1/2" Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (model DTT2Z-SDS2.5) to achieve higher loads when needed. The DTT2 fastens easily to the wide face of a single or double 2x using Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (included) and accepts a 1/2"-diameter machine bolt or anchor bolt.

These models are approved for installation with the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw. See the load values below.
