Which Make is this Hold-down?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I am look for the manufacture of this very large hold-down.  The main bolt is for a 1.5" diameter with (6) 1" diameter side bolts at 6" o.c.   I don't think it is a product of Simpson Strong-tie.  The largest hold-down Simpson is making is has (5) side bolts.

There is a possibility that whoever place this HD in the roof has failed the glu-lam beam.  It does not look original.  So if I can find out who made it and how long ago has this HD being available, it may identify the time frame such alteration were made.  (SF Bay Area)
