Simpson Strong Tie's RTUD Ratcheting Take-Up Device

The RTUD ratcheting take-up device is a cost-effective wood shrinkage compensation solution for continuous threaded rod systems. 

The RTUD is rod-diameter specific and allows for unlimited shrinkage. It is hand-installed on top of the BPRTUD (bearing plate), and after the SD9 screws have fastened the take-up device through the bearing plate and into the wood sole plate, the device provides continuous engagement with the rod, enabling the system to perform as designed at all times.

Key Features

•    Maintains rod-system tightness, allowing it to perform as designed
•    Pass-through design provides unlimited shrinkage compensation
•    Available for threaded rod of 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8″ and 1" diameters
•    Very minimal force required to allow rod to pass through take-up device, so mitigating rod buckling during wood shrinkage
