Simpson Strong Tie MP 24 Mending Plate September 11, 2012
Reviewer: Larry from McArthur, CA United States  
I think the mending plates are a great product for making flat joints in wooden frames.  As long as they are used on both sides of the frame they make a very rigid joint that doesn't work loose.  They are easy to install if the frame can be assembled on a flat, hard surface like a concrete floor because the need to be pounded in while the wood pieces are held together.  I've found it best to pound them in all around lightly first to set the teeth in somewhat so that they don't just bend over or separate frame.

I wish that Simpson would provide some design information on the joint strengths for the different sizes and for different woods.  It seems like a cop out that they don't do even a simple tear-out test so we're not using them completely blindly.
