DSC Drag Strut Connector

The DSC drag-strut connector transfers the diaphragm shear forces from the girder truss or beam to the shearwalls. The new DSC5 has been designed to optimize fastener location, resulting in a connector that outperforms the DSC4 with fewer fasteners. The DSC2 is a smaller, lighter version that installs with fewer screws.


  • The DSC5 requires 40% fewer fasteners than our previous DSC4, and gets 12% higher loads
  • Left hand and right hand versions available
  • DSC's install with the Simpson Strong-Tie® SDS 1/4" x 3" screws provided

Material: DSC2—7 gauge, DSC5—3 gauge

Finish: DSC2—Galvanized, DSC5—Simpson Strong Tie® gray paint


  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Strong-Drive® SDS screws are provided.
