RE: Lag Bolts into Narrow Face of a Stud

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Two problems for my condition, the load requires me to use 4 A35, they
would need to be offset from each side to avoid nails coming from each
side, making the ledger very deep. The other problem is nails heads from
the A35 sticking out of the ledger (i.e. 3" long nail, with 1.25 of nail
sticking out of the 1.75" thick ledger)... then you would need to use
screws, not high values with only 1.75" of penetration... don't wanna
use a thicker ledger either.

Tarek - that's the detail to use...you beat me to it!  :)
One thing to add though...I would use wood screws instead of nails from
the
clip into the ledger to avoid the possibility of suction pullout.

Gerard,

How about an A35 from stud to back of ledger, and if ledger is deep
enough,
may
be two A35's staggered
