Never seen one of these before and I was wondering if anyone else has. If not would you assume it is properly set in the bond beam?
I think it looks good. What year is the home?
I’ve never seen one of those around here. I just wanted to make sure it wasn’t some wood deck connector they threw in.
I think it is fine and would mark clip but I do not know 100% as I do not know the maker.
Gotcha. Thanks for the quick reply. Best guess is all we can do sometimes.
Thanks. Looks very similar. There was a small notch along the plate in the one I found that threw me off a bit. Almost like the plate was made for something else. Overthinking it I suppose.
I’m not nearly as smart as John and all because he’s an expert wind mitigation inspector, but I believe it’s this one: http://www.uspconnectors.com/us/products/connectors/truss-rafter-tiedowns/truss-anchors/LPTA
It’s rated for over 1,500fp of uplift which is higher than a double wrap which meets 1,350fp.
Maybe a different manufacture.
Here it is
According to the form, it is a clip. However, it looks like a predecessor to the Simpson Strong-tie H 10 clip. Depending on what it is rated for, it may be more than a clip…
You would have to know what the code was for that area as well as what the strap is and rated for.

That is the one. Thanks.
Soooooo, what do we mark on the form?
