The HSLQ heavy shear transfer angle is designed to transfer lateral loads from wood solid sawn joists or blocking into a wood solid sawn element such as a moment frame nailer. The angle offers versatility by allowing up to a 2" gap between the structural members and easy installation with Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws that are included with the HSLQ. The HSLQ is manufactured with a gap indication notch to make proper installation easy.
