Securely connect the wood beams, rafters, ledger boards of your backyard pergola or structure with the Avant 90 Degree Angle Rafter Tie from Simpson Strong-Tie. The L-shaped connector from the Simpson Strong-Tie Outdoor Accents line aims to create a more visually appealing wood to wood connection while still providing amazing structural strength. Available to accommodate the most common lumber sizes of 2 in x 2 in, 4 in x 4 in, or 6 in x 6 in boards, the Avant 90 Degree Rafter is crafted from either 12 gauge (the 4 in x 4 in and 6 in x 6 in designs) or 14 gauge (2 in x 2 in design) ZMAX® galvanized steel for a tough hold and consistently even corners throughout your shaded build. Install the Avant 90 Degree Rafter Tie via Simpson Strong-Tie Outdoor Accents structural screws and decorative washers (sold separately).

The Avant 90 Degree Angle Rafter Clip are sold individually and feature a rich, black powder-coat finish to enhance the look of your outdoor structure. Choose from a 2 in x 2 in, 4 in x 4 in, or 6 in x 6 in lumber size to perfectly fit your construction project.

To complete installation of the Avant Side Plates to the Simpson Strong-Tie Base you'll need additional hardware. The Structural Wood Screws and Hex Head Washers will secure the plates and give the finished look of fortified pergola.
