Product Overview

TBE6 Truss Bearing Enhancer

The TBE transfers load from the truss or girder to plates for bearing-limited conditions and provides exceptional uplift capacity. It replaces nail-on scabs that provide lower load transfer, or in some cases, an additional ply when needed for bearing. One size works with any number of girder plies.

The table lists allowable loads for TBE4 used on 2x4 and TBE6 used on 2x6 top plates. The table gives the different loads calculated for TBE with and without wood bearing. See Fastener Schedule and Alternate Installation tables.


18 gauge


Galvanized (G90)


Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.

TBE must be installed in pairs.

Top-plate size is 2x4 for TBE4, 2x6 for TBE6. Use alternate installation for TBE4 and TBE6 on larger plates or pre-sheathed walls. See alternate installation table.
