The present invention is a truss anchor for attaching a truss to a wall system of a building frame. The truss anchor is a single piece of metal having a lower plate member and an upper plate member. The lower plate member has a first plate section defining an area of attachment to a vertically disposed surface of the truss. A lower extension is integral this first plate section and extends lateral the truss. An upper extension is integral the lower extension and extends upward therefrom adjacent the truss. The upper plate member forms a strap and includes a first strap section integral the upper extension and substantially perpendicular the lower plate member. A second strap section, integral the first strap section, extends laterally over the lower plate member and a third strap section, integral the second strap section, extends downward parallel the first plate section of the lower plate member. The invention also includes means for securing the lower plate member to the wall system and the upper plate member to the truss.
