How do I attach jack trusses to girder truss??


I'm putting a pre-engineered hip truss system on my bathroom addition. I have the main trusses up and I can't figure out how to hang/attach the jack trusses that are on a 45 degree angle for the hip...

The big box store has lots of hangers, but no "hanger" style for attaching 2x4 on a 45 degree angle.

Any suggestions on the type of simpson bracket to use? I can order them online if I know what to get.

Thanks.

The required hangers come with the trusses and engineering papers. Contact them as they are liable.

No pictures, no plans to go by. So I'll guess look at the hurricane ties on the Simpson web site.

Can you nail the truss to the hip? I always just nailed the truss to the hip, making sure the opposite truss was lined up directly across.

Same here. Just nail them. You don't need hangers.

Nailed here too. Make sure your not pushing the hip out of a straight line s you are nailing them in. We always do them in pairs as we go up.
