All hangers in this series have double shear nailing - an innovation that distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. This allows for fewer nails, faster installation, and the use of all common nails for the same connection. Double shear hangers range from the light capacity LUS hangers to the highest capacity HGUS hangers. For medium load truss applications, the MUS offers a lower cost alternative and easier installation than the HUS or THA hangers, while providing greater load capacity and bearing than the LUS. Use all specified fasteners. Nails must be driven at an angle through the joist or truss into the header to achieve the table loads. Not designed for welded or nailer applications.
