"We took one look at our first TIMBERLINX and had three immediate applications, and ones that fit smoothly into our existing details, that came to mind. Once the equipment and inventory had been in place long enough for us to gain confidence in its application, we started coming up with strengthened connections that were outside our existing details.
If you are interested in high and demonstrable connection capacities, coupled with relative fabrication and installation convenience, in a connection that can be detailed to hide the steel and fool the eye - well, then, the TIMBERLINX system is well worth your attention."

"As a small handcrafted timber shop that takes pride in fine joinery, I can find endless uses for TIMBERLINX. I add TIMBERLINX. when designing tension joints perpendicular to the grain in douglas fir.
In tension joinery, such as ridges and connecting girts, I have substituted all spline work for housed TIMBERLINX. connections. I also use them for post to pier connection, its easy and hidden. Engineers and building officials are happy, and we have become quite efficient in using them."
