T Rex Post and Beam Connector Plate

Post and Beam Connector Plate

 

This post and beam connector plate detail shows how to use a T-Rex Connector to join a timbered beam to a post.  Post and Connector Plate T RexThe T-Rex is a piece of anodized aluminum in the shape of a “T”, in which one end gets screwed (in the case of this detail) with  GRK RSS screws to the post, and the other end goes into a slot cut into the end of the beam.  The beam is then secured to the T-Rex Connector with three ½” aluminum pins supplied by T-REX.

To aid in cutting and assembly of this connection, the team that created the T-Rex has also created some jigs and other tools that can greatly help out with the layout and cutting of the slot and holes.
