Cable Type & Length Determination

QuickTie™ Cables come in four different diameters.

Determine the necessary design load to be met and which cables are required:

QuickTie Blue (QTB): 3/16″
Allowable loads: 1,909 lbs.

QuickTie Green (QTG): 1/4″
Allowable loads: 2,839 lbs.

QuickTie Orange (QTO): 5/16″
Allowable loads: 4,455 lbs.

QuickTie Red (QTR): 3/8″
Allowable loads: 6,545 lbs.

Measure the distance from the foundation to the upper most top plate (on which the trusses bear). This dimension — QT”x” on the diagram to the left — is the QuickTie cable part required.

For example, a dimension of 9’1″ from foundation to top plate, for which a “Blue” cable is required, would require a QTB9.1 cable.
