LS Skewable L Angle

Reinforcing and Skewable Angles

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Reinforcing and Skewable Angles. You can also view product information related to the categories of: Roof Truss and Rafter Connectors, Ties, and Straps for Cold-Formed Steel Construction, Joist Framing Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction, Rigid Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction

The LS connector is a cost-effective method for connecting roof rafters to hip rafters. The durable design and fastening options of these load-rated skewable angles make them an ideal option compared to field-fabricated clip angles. The LS has well-defined fastener locations, and testing ensures that the tabulated load values account for connection eccentricities.

Key Features

  • The connectors are general utility-reinforcing angles with multiple uses
  • Field-adjustable angles from 0° to 135° allow for attaching members intersecting at angles
  • Perfect angle series for many household repairs and DIY projects


  • 43 mil (18 ga.)


  • Galvanized or ZMAX®; some models available in stainless steel. See Corrosion Information


  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • Field skewable; bend one time only
  • Joist must be constrained against rotation (for example, with solid blocking) when using a single LS per connection
