Somehow I missed the original post to which you are responding, and it is no longer on my server. So the answer to my question might be contained there.

But why should you detail a fabricated bracket when Simpson (and probably USP) have ready-made gadgets for this and similar purposes?

Again, forgive me if the question is redundant.
