I have my material currently ordered for a deck project and have submitted plans to the city. I was planning on using both the Maine Deck Bracket and two Simpson DTT2Z's for the new lateral load requirement. Used in tandem, this should meet the IRC requirements of Section 501.2, 502.2.2, 502.2.2.2 and 502.2.2.3.
Unfortunately, I am still waiting for my city inspector to make a ruling before starting.
Anyone used these products in this combination?
