Basement header question

Have a basement staircase non-load bearing wall I'm planning on removing.

I would like to put some sort of flat L bracket to fasten the headers together

Do they make flat L corner header bracket plates for this purpose?

Thanks in advance.

Can't answer because the picture of the "header" is not clear. Need to see the framing better in order to answer. Also no info on the size of floor joists or the span.

Left to right joists are approximately 14 ft long. 9 feet high by 1 3/8 width. There are 3 of them

The top to bottom are 9 feet high by 1 3/8 width and approximately 3 feet long

There are 2 of them. It looks like 3 in the picture, but one of them does not go all the way to the top.

I’m looking for some sort of bracket to attach the pieces seen in yellow

It's hard to say because I can't get a good idea of what you have there . But you would use something like this.

Simpson HHUS28-2 Double 2x8 Face Mount Hanger - G90 Galvanized


And you would use 12d nails to attach it.
