Attach bridle hanger to the primary frame as specified. When welding the hanger to the primary frame, a minimum of 1/8" x 2" fillet weld on each top flange is required. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Uplift loads do not apply to weld on applications. Place joist into hanger and secure with fasteners. If bridle hanger is less than beam depth, provide back blocking.
