THJU Multiple-Truss Hip/Jack Hanger

THJU

On This Page

The THJU hip/jack hanger offers the most flexibility and ease of installation without sacrificing performance. The U-shaped hanger works for right- and left-hand hips and can be ordered to fit a range of hip skews (up to 67 1/2°) as well as various single and 2-ply hip/jack combinations. Also can be installed before or after the hip and jack.

THJU26 is sized for the standard hip/jack combination with a 45° left- or right-hand hip. The wide seat of THJU26-W accommodates a 2-ply hip and 2-ply jack combination with a 45° maximum hip skew, or a standard single-ply hip/jack configuration with a maximum 67 1/2° hip skew. Intermediate seat widths are available for other hip/jack or hip/hip combinations.

Load Tables

THJU Load Table
  1. Tabulated loads are the total allowable loads of the hip and jack members combined; 65%–85% of the total load shall be distributed to the hip member, and the remaining percentage of the total load shall be distributed to the jack. The combined hip and jack load may not exceed the published total load.
  2. Uplift loads have been increased for earthquake or wind loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  3. For full load, the jack requires either a minimum 2x6 bottom chord or a minimum 2x4 end vertical; the hip requires either a minimum 2x6 bottom chord or a minimum 2x6 end vertical for hip skews up to 60°. For hip skews greater than 60° (THJU26-W only), a minimum 2x6 bottom chord or minimum 2x8 end vertical is required.
  4. With single 2x carrying members, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails and use 100% of the table value.
  5. For single 2x jacks, 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails may be substituted for the specified 0.148" x 3" with no reduction in load.
  6. Truss chord cross-grain tension may limit allowable loads in accordance with ANSI/TPI 1-2014. Simpson Strong-Tie® Connector Selector® software includes the evaluation of cross-grain tension in its hanger allowable loads. For additional information, contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
  7. Fasteners: Nail dimensions in the table are listed diameter by length. For additional information, see Fastener Types and Sizes Specified for Simpson Strong-Tie Connectors.
