Installation Process

Structure Lock products are easy to install which saves you time and money

Step 1: Placing Braces

Fit braces over the top and bottom of the joists. Slide both pieces together so they are touching in the center.

Step 2: Fastening Braces

Install screws through the tabs into the neighboring braces to interlock and fasten screws through the side slots into the joists.

Step 3: Spacing Braces

For optimal support, space the rows of braces approximately 7 feet apart or adjust depending on the needs of your project.
