The lateral restraints were fitted from outside the property with a minimum of disturbance. The Householder simply had to lift few floorboards to determine the position of the joists and to ensure wires or pipes that may be hidden are avoided during tie installation.
Each Lateral restraint tie has a drill like leading end for cutting into softwood. Using a drill, simply wind the lateral restraint ties into the timbers and resin fix the masonry end.
