From Our Editors

  • VTCR Valley Truss Connectors
  • Source: REMODELING Magazine 9/15/2010
  • Erecting or retrofitting valley trusses just got easier. The VTCR Valley Truss Connector can be installed on top of roof sheathing or directly to the framing below, eliminating the need to add a support wedge under the valley truss or to bevel the bottom chord to match the roof pitch. For time savings, the VTCR connector installs after the valley truss has been set. The connector installs from one side with nails or with the maker's Strong-Drive SD structural connector screws, for 30% greater uplift capacity. Suitable for beveled or non-beveled bottom chords, the VTCR is clearly marked for fast setup of pitches from 0:12 to 12:12. More
