HL Heavy L-Shaped Angle

HL

On This Page

The HL is a versatile angle designed to improve corner stability. This multipurpose connector helps promote standardization and construction economy. The L-shaped design of this heavy utility strap makes it ideal for a variety of applications where two members meet at a 90° angle.

Key Features

  • Helps reinforce wood members in right-angle connections
  • Resists uplift and lateral forces
  • Achieves lateral loads in both directions when installed in pairs

Finish

  • 7 and 8 ga. models — galvanized; 3 ga. models — Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint. Some models available in HDG; see Corrosion Information.

Installation

  • Install with bolts
  • Lag screws of equal diameter (minimum 5" long) may be substituted for bolts in the beam with no reduction in load.

Options

  • Gussets may be added to HL models when L ≥ 5" (specify G after model number, as in HL46G)
  • Ornamental alternative: HLPC angles

Load Tables

    These products are available with additional corrosion protection.

  1. See General Notes for Straps and Ties.
  2. For SPF/HF lumber, use 0.85 x DF/SP allowable loads.
  3. Parts should be centered on the face of the member, which is at least as wide as the angle, to which they are attached.
  4. Wood members for the "3" and "5" series must have a minimum width and thickness of 3 1/2" for table loads to apply.
  5. Wood members for the "4" and "7" series must have a minimum width and thickness of 5 1/8" for table loads to apply.
  6. Allowable loads are for a single connector. Uplift loads may be doubled when using two parts. Connectors are required on both sides to achieve lateral loads in both directions. Lateral loads may not be doubled.
  7. Lag screws of equal diameter (minimum 5" long) may be substituted for bolts in the beam with no reduction in load.
