The DTT2 can be used to satisfy the IRC provision for a 1,500 lb. lateral load connection at two locations per deck. Additionally, the DTT2 has been tested and evaluated in deck guardrail post applications to resist the code-specified lateral forces at the top of railing assemblies. The DTT2 is also available with longer 2 1/2" Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (model DTT2Z-SDS2.5) to achieve higher loads when needed. The DTT2 fastens easily to the wide face of a single or double 2x using Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (included) and accepts a 1/2"-diameter machine bolt or anchor bolt.
