Simpson Strong-Tie straps and plates join and reinforce joints with simple, versatile solutions for a wide range of connections. Available in many lengths, widths and thicknesses, straps can be used on the wide or narrow face of lumber for light repairs or heavy-duty projects. Many straps are designed to be used back-to-back on a piece of lumber without fastener interference. The stud plate tie series offers various solutions for connecting the stud to the top and bottom plates. DSP double-stud plate ties connect double studs to top and bottom track and can be used for either top- or bottom-track applications.
