  • Ideal for anchoring trusses running perpendicular or parallel to the wall
  • Embedment line stamped on part simplifies installation and helps avoid installation errors


  • 18 gauge

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Whether in grouted CMU or concrete, the LTA2 must be embedded to the depth of the embedment line stamped on the part.
  • Attach to grouted concrete block with a minimum one #5 rebar horizontal in the top lintel block.
  • For parallel-to-wall applications, install the LTA2 with flanges facing the center of the wall. Minimum edge distance of 1 1/2" required.
