LSSJ Face-Mount Adjustable Light Slopeable/Skewable Jack Hanger

LSSJ

On This Page

The innovative LSSJ is ideal for connecting jack rafters to hip members. Featuring a one-sided connection point for ease of installation and a versatile, hinged seat, the LSSJ is easily field adjustable to all typical rafter slopes ranging from 0:12 to 12:12. The LSSJ’s header flange allows for easy skew adjustment, from 0° to 45°. It ships pre-bent at 45° so is ready to place for most typical applications. Specify left (L) or right (R) model when ordering.
