B8 Summary - Using Toe-Nailed Connections to Attach Trusses at Bearing Locations
Toe-nailed connections are often used to attach metal plate connected wood trusses to bearing walls, beams and girder trusses, for the purpose of resisting uplift and lateral forces applied to the truss. This four-page document provides uplift and lateral resistance capacities for toe-nailed connections consisting of two, three, four or five nails for various types of nails and species of wood. General connection options are also provided when toe-nailing is not enough. This document summarizes section B8 of the BCSI book, and is full-color with English and Spanish text. The BCSI-B8 Summary Sheet is part of the BCSI B-Series.
