HSLQ Heavy Shear Transfer Angle

Strong Frame Moment Frame

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 two-inch 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.

Material: 12 gauge

Finish: Galvanized, available in HDG

Installation:

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Use long leg with notch indicator. (Notch indicates maximum allowed gap.)
  • Minimum 4x8 wood members are required.
  • Add filler shims where required in order not to load the angle in any direction other than lateral, as indicated.
