The HTHMQ is a versatile, high-capacity truss hanger designed for various lumber types and multiple-ply trusses. The truss hanger accommodates a greater range of structural designs while accommodating right- or left-hand hips (at 30°–60° skews), which can be used for terminal hips with or without the center common jack. The HTHMQ can accommodate various widths of lumber.
Available in various stirrup widths to accommodate various lumber types and multiple-ply trusses
Installed with Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws that eliminate the inconvenience of bolted installation
Enables 2–3 member connection for a broader range of structural designs
Back plate — 3 gauge; stirrup — 7 gauge
Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws supplied with connector.
All multiple members must be fastened together to act as a single unit.
Shall be attached to a minimum double girder truss to allow for required minimum screw penetration. See footnote 5.
Girders must be adequately laterally braced to prevent excessive displacement due to secondary torsional stresses (Ref ANSI/TPI 1-2014 Section 220.127.116.11).
See Image Gallery for different installation options.
Tabulated allowable loads for three-member configurations assume that each hip carries 40% of the total load and the jack carries 20% of the total load. Tabulated allowable loads for single hip-jack configurations assume that 75% of the total load is distributed to the hip and 25% to the jack.
Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws may be installed through metal truss plates as approved by the Truss Designer, provided the requirements of ANSI/TPI 1-2014, Sections 18.104.22.168 and 8.9.2 are met (predrilling required through the plate using a 5/32" bit maximum).
