Nail On Stud Tie



Formed galvanised steel connector designed to provide an effective means of fastening top and bottom wall plates to studs in high wind areas.

These formed galvanised steel connectors:

  • Incorporates preformed teeth and/or nails making it quick and easy to apply.
  • Eliminates timber splitting as the preformed teeth and/or nails are positioned away from timber ends and edges.
  • Provides greater tie-down strength as it is driven into the side grain of timber to resist wind uplift in lateral shear.


The Nail On Stud Tie must be fixed on the same side as the truss fixing (for uplift) or the same side as the bracing.

The vertical bend of the Nail On Stud Tie should be placed over the stud to top plate joint.

Secure using pneumatically driven 32 x 2.5mm hardened screw shank nails using the ‘crosses’ marked on the Nail On Stud Tie.




The following table gives the recommended Wind Uplift Limit State Design capacities for the Multinail Nail On Stud Tie. These capacities depend on the joint group of the timber to which the Nail On Stud Tie is nailed.

NOTE: Nail On Stud Tie to be used in conjunction with standard framing practices; e.g. 2/3.05mm diameter nails in end grain of studs.

NOTE: The capacities are derived from AS1720-2010 and are for uplift in houses where failure is unlikely to affect an area greater than 25m2. For primary elements in structures other than houses or elements in a house for which failure would be greater than 25m2 these capacities must be multiplied by 0.94. For primary joints in essential services or post disaster buildings multiply by 0.88.
