Deck joist hanger question - rim joist
I have a staircase coming down from a short section of deck, and to get my railing posts to line up correctly I really want to double up on the rim joist in that location. I'm stuck on how to properly attach this joist to the ledger board.

Should I just use a concealed hanger on the outboard joist, and nail the inboard joist to it? Here is a picture:

Use a Simpson Strong-Tie HUC210-2 or equal concealed double joist hanger. make sure its at least a Z-max finish

ah, thanks...I didn't realize you could get a doubled concealed hanger (I was looking at the USP catalog and didn't see one). Will go with that Simpson part you suggested - thank you.
