As the first strap by Simpson Strong-Tie to handle both compression and tension, the CTS is designed to repair wood members, such as top plates, studs and trusses. A unique rolled-edge design allows the CTS strap to span gaps as wide as 4 inches while still fitting on the narrow face of 2x lumber. The CTS has been tested specifically for top/bottom plate repair, and meets the requirements of the IBC and IRC for repairing top plates that have been cut or notched to accommodate plumbing or HVAC ductwork.
