L, LS and S/LS angles are load rated, providing the correct thickness and number of fasteners for the specifier compared with field-fabricated clip angles. These angles also have well-defined fastener locations, and testing ensures that the tabulated load values account for connection eccentricities. The connectors are general utility reinforcing angles with multiple uses. S/LS and LS connectors are skewable and can be used to attach members intersecting at angles.


  • L — 54 mil (16 ga.); LS — 43 mil (18 ga.); S/LS 43 mil (18 ga.)


  • Galvanized (G90)


  • Use all specified fasteners
  • S/LS and LS — Field-skewable; bend one time only
  • CFS framing must be constrained against rotation when using a single S/LS or LS per connection
