The Simpson Strong-Tie® LTB provides bracing between floor joists as a critical contribution to the structural strength of a floor. Installed in pairs, this light tension-type bridging keeps joists in place and prevents them from rotating while distributing loads over more than one joist. The LTB features a staggered nail pattern to accommodate 2×8 and 2×10 joists and is designed for maximum nailing flexibility, with the option to use as few as two nail holes on each end, and as many as six.
