MGT Medium Girder Tiedown
The MGT and HGT series are girder tiedowns for moderate- to high-load applications that are typically installed prior to roof sheathing. The MGT wraps over the heel and is anchored on one side of the truss. The HGT straddles the heel and anchors on both sides of the truss. The HGT is field-adjustable, making it suitable for trusses with top chord slopes up to 8/12. The HGT is available in sizes for two-, three- and four-ply widths.
