The TSP is designed for connecting a sill/top plate to the wall stud or a 2x rafter to the top plate. This twist stud plate tie is installed on the wide face of the 2x stud to avoid interference with sheathing. The TSP features a top-flange that allows the plate to securely attach to both sill plates and top plates.
- Embossment feature provides strength at the bend
- Can be installed before or after placement of wall
- 16 gauge
- Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes

Load Values with Carbon Steel Nails
- See Straps and Ties General Notes.
- Allowable loads are for one anchor. A minimum rafter thickness of 2 1/2" must be used when framing anchors are used on each side of the joist and on the same side of the plate (exception: connectors installed such that nails on opposite side don't interfere).
- Allowable loads in the F1 direction are not intended to replace diaphragm boundary members and do not account for possible cross-grain bending of the truss or rafter members.
- When cross-grain bending or cross-grain tension cannot be avoided in the members, mechanical reinforcement to resist such forces shall be considered by the designer.
- Hurricane ties are shown installed on the outside of the wall for clarity and assume a minimum overhang of 3 1/2". Installation on the inside of the wall is acceptable. For uplift Continuous Load Path, connections in the same area (i.e., truss-to-plate connector and plate-to-stud connector) must be on same side of the wall.
- Refer to Simpson Strong-Tie® technical bulletin T-C-HTIEBEAR for allowable bearing enhancement loads.
- For TSP installed stud to single plate see Stud-Plate Ties.
- For simultaneous loads in more than one direction, the connector must be evaluated using either the Unity Equation or the 75% Rule, as described in Straps and Ties General Notes.
- Fasteners: Nail dimensions in the table are listed diameter by length. For additional information, see Fastener Types and Sizes Specified for Simpson Strong-Tie Connectors.
