Stud Tie

Formed galvanised steel connector designed to provide an effective means of fastening top and bottom wall plates to studs in high wind areas

These formed galvanised steel connectors:

Incorporates preformed teeth and/or nails making it quick and easy to apply.

Eliminates timber splitting as the preformed teeth and/or nails are positioned away from timber ends and edges.

Provides greater tie-down strength as it is driven into the side grain of timber to resist wind uplift in lateral shear.


Step 1

Position the shorter leg of the Stud Tie on the external side of the wall plate and hold firmly.

Step 2

Hammer the preformed teeth into the stud and then bend the longer leg around the plate. Once a tight bend is achieved, hammer the remaining teeth into the other side of the stud.




The following table gives the recommended Wind Uplift Limit State Design capacities for the Multinail Stud Ties. These capacities are dependent upon the joint group of the timber to which the Multinail Stud Ties are affixed.

Design Capacity (kN) per Stud Tie
Unseasoned TimberSeasoned Timber
J2 J3 J4 JD3 JD4 JD5
9.9 9.9 6.1 12.4 7.6 6.1

NOTE: The capacities are derived from AS1720-2010 and are for uplift in houses where failure is unlikely to affect an area greater than 25m2. For primary elements in structures other than houses or elements in a house for which failure would be greater than 25m2 these capacities must be multiplied by 0.94. For primary joints in essential services or post disaster buildings multiply by 0.88.
