    1. Loads include a 60% load duration increase on the fasteners for wind or seismic loading.
    2. Use half of the required nails in each member being connected to achieve the listed loads.
Allowable Load =      No. of Nails Used  
No. of Nails in Table
 x Table Load
Allowable Load =   40 Nails (Used) 
50 Nails (Table)
 x 4585 lbs = 3668 lbs
  1. Calculate the connector value for a reduced number of nails as follows:

    Example: CMSTC16 in DF/SP with 40 nails total.
    (Half of the nails in each member being connected)

  2. Tension loads apply for uplift when installed vertically.
  3. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 16d Sinker = 0.148" dia. x 3 1/4" long, 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3 " long. See other nail sizes and information.

CMSTC provides nail slots for easy installation; it can be cut to length. CS are continuous utility straps which can be cut to length on the job site. Packaged in lightweight (about 40 pounds) cartons.

Finish: Galvanized. Some products available in ZMAX coating; see Corrosion Information.


  • Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
  • Wood shrinkage after strap installation across horizontal wood members may cause strap to buckle outward.
  • Refer to the applicable code for minimum nail penetration and minimum wood edge and end distances.
  • The table shows the maximum allowable loads and the nails required to obtain them. Fewer nails may be used; reduce the allowable load as shown in footnote 3.
  • The cut length of the strap shall be equal to twice the "End Length" noted in the table plus the clear span dimension.
  • CMST only - Use every other triangle hole if the wood tends to split. Use round and triangle holes for comparable MST loads, providing wood does not tend to split.
  • For lap splice and alternate nailing information, See Technical Bulletin T-CMST.
  • CS straps are available in 25' lengths, order CS14-R, CS16-R, CS18-R, CS20-R or CS22-R.
