Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, now offers its versatile, patent-pending LSSR rafter hanger in 2x lumber sizes that can install with both miter-cut and square-cut joists for plated truss.

The three new models — LSSR26Z, LSSR28Z and LSSR210Z — feature a ZMAX® finish for extra corrosion protection and respectively accommodate 2x6, 2x8 and 2x10 lumber.

Like the original LSSR models, these new sizes are field-adjustable for skews up to 45° and feature an innovative hinged swivel seat that adjusts up to a 45° slope. Plus, LSSR hangers can be installed after all of the rafters have been tacked into place, boosting contractor versatility, productivity, and efficiency on the jobsite.
