Since you asked

Here is the way the the brackets are installed :

Hold Down for attaching stud to concrete foundation

This bracket attaches the bottom plate to the foundation

The engineer specified placement and size of the bracket.  The studs also have to be built up where it is attached.

Then the horizontal brackets shown below go in between where the vertical brackets are.

  1. Hi Anthony, I buy those brackets from Simpson if that is what you are talking about. And. I swipe those images from their website too. I’m sure they don’t care but they might prefer I put a link there….hmm….I’m not doing that.
