Product Details

Strong‑Drive® connectors have been designed and tested with specific types of nails, which are generally referred to as Structural Connector Nails (SCN). The specified nail size, type and quantity must be installed in the correct holes of the connector or strap to achieve the published loads for the hardware. The dimensions and bending yield strength characteristics needed for nails used in Simpson Strong-Tie connectors. 

The SCN Smooth-Shank Connector Nail has been developed as the optimum nail for connector products. It is the best choice for achieving maximum load values in Simpson Strong‑Tie® structural connectors. This nail is available for both hand-drive and CCN64 Collated Connector Nailer.

These coated fasteners possess a level of corrosion resistance that makes them suitable for use in some exterior and corrosive environments and with some preservative-treated timber.
For applications in higher-exposure applications, consider Type-300 series stainless-steel fasteners for superior corrosion resistance. Bit(s) included with every box of screws.
Pre-drilling and countersink may be necessary at ends, butt joints, and on applications where denser material is used. Follow board manufacturers recommendations where applicable.
