Although drawn on the plans and in the catalogue as mounted flush with the plate, I have found some HDa's monted to the vertical member as much as 2" above the plate. I called Bill Walker of Simpson regarding a project on which the Engineer of Record was asking me to verify the hardware. He told me that the only result was a "loss of deflection". I included this conversation in my report to the Designer, but I didn't receive any comment and when I subsequently visited the site, was told that the Building Inspector didn't consider it an issue. Isn't that something for the Inspection community to be concerned with? Since I am a Special/Deputy Inspector, a framing or hardware inspection is actually outside my sphere of licensing so my report is really in-house to the Engineer only and doesn't have any clout even if I had a call to make. I ask for some feedback, please. R.
