    No they are not, But, provide an easy way to address the uplift.

    mark,
    I agree with your statement that the H-clips address the uplift. Even on plan review and field inspections they make verification easier. You can see the clips from a distance and most of the time you can determine that they used the proper amount of fasteners. The problem you have in the field with nails is determining that three hand driven nails are in the truss tied to the T-plate from the floor and that the correct size and length was used.
