High Load Easy Grips are generally used in high wind areas for tying down roof trusses to a metal frame top plate and can be used in any area where there is a need to tie down high uplift.
Fix to truss with 6/12 guage screws into truss and fix to top plate with 3/12 guage screws in each leg. Total of 12 screws required with each grip.
Can use Green Tip #12 Screws into timber trusses
Use metal tip screws for top plate
Do not over tighten screws
Metal top plate to be a minimum 1.6mm G450 Steel.
Design Capacities for a single High Load Easy Grip
Notes: 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.
