TB — tension-type bridging with maximum nailing flexibility. Use just two of the seven nail holes at each end.
LTB — staggered nail pattern accommodates 2x8 and 2x10 joists. Use just two of the six nail holes at each end. LTB40 has rigid prongs that install easily into the joist, and embossments that allow crisp bends.
Material: LTB — 22 gauge; NCA and TB — 20 gauge (except NCA2x12-16 — 18 gauge)
Finish: Galvanized (G90)
Support floor joists with a depth-to-thickness ratio of six or more with bridging at intervals not exceeding 8'. If span is greater than 8', install on 2x8 or larger joists. If span is greater than 16', use more than one pair.
Tension bridging works only in tension, so must be used in cross pairs.
Install bridging tightly; loose installation may allow floor movement.
NCA may be installed before or after sheathing, from the top or bottom. Simply locate the bend line approximately 1" from the joist edge.
NCA has nail holes in one end for use if a prong is bent during installation. Fully seat nails (0.131" x 1 1/2") if they are used; otherwise, they may lead to squeaks.
TB requires two 0.148" x 1 1/2" fasteners per end.
LTB requires two 0.113" x 2" nails per end.

California Proposition 65
⚠WARNING: – www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
We are providing this warning pursuant to a law passed by California in 1986 called the “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986”, or “Proposition 65” for short.
A Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. In fact, the California government has clarified that “[t]he fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe.”
The California agency tasked with implementing Proposition 65 has also explained, “You could think of Proposition 65 more as a ‘right to know’ law than a pure product safety law.” See http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/background/p65plain.html
