LJS Double-Shear Joist Hanger

Share This Post:


The LJS is a common face-mount truss hanger designed for quick installation. This double-shear joist hanger features dome-shaped nail holes that guide nails into the proper installation angle. This design requires only common nails for all connections.

Key Features

  • Requires fewer nails providing a fast installation process
  • Our patented double-shear nailing distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength
  • These hangers cannot be modified but will accommodate a skew of up to 5°


  • 18 gauge


  • Galvanized


  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • Nails must be driven at an angle through the joist or truss into the header to achieve the tabulated resistances
  • Where 16d commons are specified, 10d commons may be used at 0.83 of the tabulated factored resistance
  • Not designed for welded or nailer applications
  • With single-ply 2x carrying members, use 10d x 1 1/2″ nails into the header and 10d commons into the joist, and reduce the resistance to 0.64 of the table value where 16d nails are specified
