Simpson MST48 Medium Strap Tie
Straps are designed to transfer tension loads in a wide variety of applications.
PS—HDG; HST3 and HST6—Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint; all others—galvanized. Some products are available in stainless steel or ZMAX coating; see Corrosion Information.

MST - Splitting may be a problem with installations on lumber smaller than 3 1/2"; either fill every nail hole with 10dx1 1/2" nails or fill every-other hole with 16d common nails. Reduce the allowable load based upon the size and quantity of fasteners used.

Table
  1. Loads include a 60% load duration increase on the fasteners for wind or earthquake loading
  2. 10d commons may be substituted where 16d sinkers are specified at 100% of the table loads.
  3. 16d sinkers (0.148" dia. x 3 1/4" long) or 10d commons may be substituted where 16d commons are specified at 0.84 of the table loads. 
  4. Allowable bolt loads are based on parallel-to-grain loading and these minimum member thicknesses: MST – 2 1/2"; HST2 and
    HST5 – 4"; HST3 and HST6 – 4 1/2".
  5. Use half of the required nails in each member being connected to achieve the listed loads.
  6. Straps not installed over sheathing with 10d (0.148 dia. x 3) nails specified may be substituted with 10dx1 1/2 (0.148 dia. x 1 1/2) with no reduction in load.
  7. Tension loads apply for uplift as well when installed vertically.
  8. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 16d Sinker = 0.148" dia. x 3 1/4" long, 10dx1 1/2 = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
