The TC truss connector is an ideal connector for scissor trusses and can allow horizontal movement up to 1 1/4". The TC also attaches plated trusses to top plates or sill plates to resist uplift forces. Typically used on one or both ends of truss as determined by the Designer.
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
Drive 0.148" x 3" nails into the truss at the inside end of the slotted holes (inside end is towards the center of the truss and clinch on back side). Do not seat these nails into the truss — allow room under the nail head for movement of the truss with respect to the wall.
After installation of roofing materials nails may be required to be fully seated into the truss. (As required by the Designer or Truss Designer).
Optional TC Installation
Bend one flange up 90°. Drive specified nails into the top and face of the top plates or install Titen® 2 screws into the top and face of masonry wall. See optional load tables and installation details.
