I'm using double sided hurricane ties to secure my joists to my beams for a deck I am building. The tie looks like below:
I had been using 1.5" joist hanger nails for the 6 holes at the top that connect to the joist and then some 10d nails to connect the bottom 4 holes to the beam.
A friend of mine was helping me and ended up using joist hanger nails for the 4 holes on the bottom as well.
I have a bad feeling that these are not going to cut it and that I should yank the nails in the bottom 4 holes and replace with some 10d nails. Thoughts?
