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.
