That is fine. But sometimes you have to have the straps made specific to the job. That means having drawings made up, and taking them to a local metal shop that deals with these kind of items.

Glad you have such available code requirements nearby. You can DIY, that is our goal here. Sounds as if you have it all under control or at least know the proper procedure. Be sure to ask the correct nail spacing on the straps, if they didn't tell you already. Filling every hole or every other hole is usually called out on the engineering plan; check the fastener schedule- ask to be certain. At least in my experience framing houses (over 350) since '73 to '03, then strictly remodel till now.

The links are for showing correct procedure/science/info/magnitudes more than I can type in my answer; trumping opinion/way I was taught/way we do it here- answers.

Simpson's are already engineered/warranted, why pay again... IMO.

Gary, in some cases you cannot use the Simpsons, and need something custom for the situation.

Thought you might want to see some current pics. I wound up installing 10 plate straps total. Subfloor is in and perfectly level in all directions thanks to laser level, shims and plane. Screwed down every 4". Inspectors want to do plumbing rough in and building inspections at the same time so now gonna frame the linen closet and install new DWV and pex (which completes an entire replacement of all supply lines in the house except one other bathroom which comes later)
