MSCPT Multiple-Truss Hanger


This product has been discontinued. Please see the HTHMQ as a replacement.

The MSCPT is a high-capacity, top flange welded hanger designed to carry 2 or 3 trusses in a terminal hip installation. The top flange is notched at the center to accommodate vertical and diagonal web members in the girder truss.


  • Top flange — 3 gauge; stirrup — 11 gauge (MSCPT2, MSCPT2N), 7 gauge (MSCPT2-2, MSCPT2-2N)


  • Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint


  • Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
  • The total load must be evenly distributed about the centerline to avoid eccentric loading.
  • All multiple members must be fastened together to act as a single unit.
  • Minimum vertical carrying member sizes are 2x6 for MSCPT2 and MSCPT2N, and 2x8 for MSCPT2-2 and MSCPT2-2N.
  • Minimum carrying member bottom chord is a 2-ply 2x6.


  • H1 and H2 should be equal to the bottom chord depth of the carrying member in order to maintain all members flush at the bottom.
  • Hip stirrups can be skewed from 25° to 45°.
  • The W1 and W2 of the MSCPT2 may be increased up to 3 7/16", provided the stirrups' configuration remains symmetrical.

  2. Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  3. Wind (160) is a download rating.
