52295, 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 flat substantially rectangular with an elongated slot through one side and at least one opening at the other end. 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 typically around the perimeter of the modular building. Another version of the tie connector having two flaps that wrap around two sides of a vertical support member allowing a bolt to be inserted through and be affixed. A final version of the tie connector having a vertical flap bent in a relatively perpendicular fashion such that the flap can be mounted around a side of a vertical support member. The hurricane straps are then inserted through the elongated slots and secured to a ground anchor. 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.
