LUS Double Shear Joist Hanger

Joist hangers are designed to provide support underneath the joist, rafter or beam to provide a strong a connection. The LUS Double Shear Joist Hanger values engineering at its finest. All hangers in the LUS series have Double-Shear Nailing. This innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation, and the use of standard nails for all connections.

Key Features
  • Stamp of "Double-Shear Nailing" on the side
  • Patented double-shear nailing design ensures a strong, durable connection (US Patent 5,603,580)
  • Slit width dome guides the nail into the joist at a 45° angle 
  • Speed Prongs help to temporarily position and secure the connector for easier and faster installation
  • Angled joist nailing easier in tight spaces
  • Designed for greater strength with fewer fasteners to install
  • The CCN64 Collated Connector Nailer is the perfect companion for the LUS and other Simpson Strong-Tie timber connectors to get the job done with ease and in less time
Scope of Use
  • Compatible with Strong-Drive® SD screws
  • Available in 316 Stainless Steel for outdoor structures and more corrosive environments such as coastal areas
  • Use SCNR stainless steel nails with LUS stainless steel hangers
Limitations on Use
