Ellis Purlin Splicer or Red Head

One Part Splices Purlins and Receives Shore! Here is the simplified way to do two jobs at once in shoring: Nailed to adjoining ends of two purlins, it is a splicer…with a shore slipped into the bottom part, it is a shore holder! The L-shaped assemblies of purlins and shores can be extended to any desired length, and a shore supports at the exact center of each joint. purlin splicer
