Collar Tie Bracket

Hi all--

I am going to install collar ties on the existing rafters in my 60 year old (20'x30' - yeah, it's small but it's mine) beach cottage dwelling.

Can anyone recommend a good collar tie bracket?

Thanks much.

thanks for the link.
that was good.

although, i wound up just nailing the collar-ties to the rafters approximately 1/3 down.

now, i'm going to plan to retro a truss into the scheme for additional support.

the higher you install the collar tie, the less effective it is, and also the more nails you need.
