The LTS provides a tension connection between two members, resisting light to medium uplift loads at the rafter or heel of a truss. This economical light twist strap has a small bend section to reduce interference at the transition points between the two members. The LTS is engineered so the straps do not need to be wrapped over the truss to achieve the allowable load.
