Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • Steps:
    1. Position LSSH connector against plumb-cut end of joist. Fasten joist side flanges on both sides with 10d (0.148″) x 1-1/2″ HDG nails. Bend seat up to fit against joist bottom and drive (1) 10d (0.148″) x 1-1/2″ HDG nail through bottom seat into rafter bottom. Drive (2) 10d (0.148″) x 1-1/2″ HDG nails at downward angle through dimpled nailing guides.
    2. Lean connector and rafter end against ridge beam at desired position. Install specified 10d (0.148″ dia. x 3″) HDG or 16d (0.162 x 3-1/2″) HDG nails through nail holes into ridge beam at right 90° angle. If skewing the rafter, only drive nails into ridge beam on inside flange.
    3. Bend flange to desired angle.
    4. Hammer outside flange until edge touches header. Fasten outside flange to ridge by driving specified 10d (0.148″ dia. x 3″) HDG or 16d (0.162 x 3-1/2″) HDG nails through nail holes.
  • Web stiffeners are required for all wood I-Joist installations.
