  1. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Roof (125/160) is a download rating.
  3. Tabulated hip and jack allowable loads assume that 75% of the total load is distributed to the hip and 25% to the jack. It is permitted to distribute 65% to 85% of the tabulated total load to the hip, and the remaining percentage of total load to the jack. The combined hip and jack load may not exceed the published Total Load.
  4. For terminal hips divide the total allowable load by 2 to determine the allowable load for each hip.
  5. Hip loads are for each hip.
  6. Load distribution is 40% of total load for each hip and 20% for the jack. Other hip/jack load distributions are allowed if the sum of all three carriedmembers does not exceed the total load and the hip members are equally loaded.
  7. Truss chord cross-grain tension may limit allowable loads in accordance with ANSI/TPI 1-2007. Simpson Strong-Tie® Connector Selector® software includes the ANSI/TPI evaluation in its hanger allowable loads. For additional information, contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
  8. With single 2x carrying members, use 10dx1 1/2" nails with 0.67 of the table values.
  9. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 10dx1 1/2 = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
