Simpson Strong LS Skewable L Angle

Simpson Strong-Tie Company

The LS connector is a cost-effective method for connecting roof rafters to hip rafters. The durable design and fastening options of these load-rated skewable angles make them an ideal option compared to field-fabricated clip angles. The LS has well-defined fastener locations, and testing ensures that the tabulated load values account for connection eccentricities.

Key Features

  • The connectors are general utility-reinforcing angles with multiple uses
  • Field-adjustable angles from 0° to 135° allow for attaching members intersecting at angles
  • Perfect angle series for many household repairs and DIY projects
