52DIG11, 52 23, 248503, E04B 138
A tie connector for joining a modular type building or the like to the ground. One version of the tie connector having a substantially L-shaped body with an elongated slot through one side. The elongated slot provides an attachment site for a hurricane type strap to be inserted and coupled to a buckle. The opposite end of the tie connectors are attached to horizontal support members around the perimeter of the modular building. The hurricane straps are then inserted through the elongated slots and secured to a ground anchor. Another version of the tie connector provides a Substantially L-shaped body with an additional vertical flap that can be affixed to vertical support members giving additional stability. The elongated slot has the unique feature of rounded edges of sufficient radius thereby omitting any type of cutting effect that might occur when the straps are under high stress conditions.
