The Simpson Strong-Tie CCQM/CCTQM/ECCLQM embedded column caps are designed for use in raised pier foundations and applications where heavy timbers rest on concrete or concrete block columns. The heavy-gauge beam seats and unique SSTB-style anchor bolts provide the high uplift and lateral resistance needed to help resist high wind events. The new ECCLQMD is a variation that incorporates an additional seat to support a third member at the corner connection.
Framing is fastened with Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SDS wood screws (included) which install with no pre-drilling and feature a corrosion resistant double-barrier coating.
- CCQM—Intended for use along a floor support beam and non-corner locations
- CCTQM – Also for use along a floor support beam and non-corner locations with a side bucket that accommodates intermediate support beams coming at 90 degrees.
- ECCLQM-KT – Intended for use at the corners with MSTQM straps to make the connection from the ECCLQM to the wall framing above.
- ECCLL/RQMD-KT – Ideal for applications where a member is needed off the corner of the structure, such as a deck joist/beam.
