Tension ties offer a solution for resisting tension loads that are fastened with nails. The HTT4 and HTT5 are the latest generation of tension ties. They feature an optimized nailing pattern which results in better performance with less deflection. Designed to meet rigorous code standards, the HTT4 and HTT5 offer higher loads than their predecessors.
HTT5KT is sold as a kit with the holdown, bearing plate washer and Strong-Drive® SD Connector screws. The HTT5-3/4 is designed to use a 3/4"-diameter anchor bolt. 3/4" post-installed anchor bolts are commonly used when retrofitting tension ties to horizontal wood members.
The LTT19 light tension tie is designed for 2x joists or purlins and the LTT20B is for nail- or bolt-on applications. The 3" nail spacing makes the LTT20B suitable for wood I-joists with 10d x 1 1/2". The LTTI31 is designed for wood chord open-web truss attachments to concrete or masonry walls and may also be installed vertically on a minimum 2x6 stud.
These models are approved for installation with the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw. See the load values below.
