    Is there any Strong-Tie standard for bending the LSU26 so that the side “wings” bend forward (out of paper to right)? Is there a standard procedure? What should be used for bending (tools)?

    Bending of the LSU side wings or “A” flange can be done by bending forward or backward depending on your required installation. The question is regarding bending the flanges forward, which
    implies a corner installation. The information for corner installations and load capacities are given in the engineering letter: https://embed.widencdn.net/download/ssttoolbox/ebxl6wg7dx/L-C-LSUCORNER15.pdf?u=ydkg9w

    For installation use common tools such as a vice grip to secure the flange and bend the part to the required angle. When bending the LSU flanges, they must not be bent more than one time.
