    Looks like the hanger is fastened to the web of an i-joist. Don’t think the mfgr allows that.

    R106.1.2 in regards to the SST hanger, drywall screws would not be permitted but SST screws would. So the hanger would not be installed correctly per manufactures instructions. I believe the correct hanger is being used for a 1.5 width framing lumber unless the plans state otherwise. GP and TJI allow both USP and Simpson hanger usage with this type LVL beam.

    Simpson loves these for their road show on "what not to do" with their hangers.

    Those don't look to be the correct Simpson hard nails for the hanger, appear to be 2 different types of nails as well.

    I was interpreting the plywood where the caption is ... to be the flange of the joist. You could be right.
