RST-3 Hurricane Tie
The RST is a versatile connector that provides uplift resistance for roof trusses and rafters for applications where attachment to the wall stud rather than the top plate is preferred. The unique geometry allows the connector to straddle a double 2x top plate either with or without a 5/8" bearing strip. The strap portion of the connector can be bent about the perforated strap portion of the connector to enable connection to either the narrow or wide face of the stud.
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
For connections to the wide face of the stud, bend the RST about the perforated strap portion of the connector. Bend only once.
