Opens up new possibilities

Both brackets, the V-Bracket and the 45° Diamond Bracket, are used to build triangular constructions. In contrast to the Diamond Bracket, the angle of the V-Bracket is freely adjustable, maximum 60° acute! This allows perfect adaptation to the load situation, bypassing thick branches and building wide cantilevered platforms, even in inclined trees. It is more suitable for small to medium-sized tree house projects and 2D constructions.

Pointed angle

For vertical loads
The more acute the lower angle of the triangle (max. 60°), the higher the vertical loads the triangle can bear. The load is mainly applied in the direction of the fibres of the trunk, where the wood is much more stable.

Treehouse triangle wood construction flat angle

Flat angle

Floating
Shallow angles are either necessary to avoid branches or when the triangle is built close to the ground and no other space is available. But be careful, very shallow angles put a lot of lateral stress on the lower GTS Screw and reduce the load-bearing capacity.

Cantilevered on one side

Eccentric platforms
You can also open the triangle on one side to build cantilevered platforms. Again, make sure that the leverage is not too great, build lightly and avoid twisting around the trunk.

What is delivered?

1 × V-Bracket (consists of 2 parts)

Product Details
  • Variable angle (max. 60° acute) gives leeway in designing the triangle
  • Chamfer on the back of the sleeve helps with “threading” onto the GTS
  • Chamfered screw holes guarantee optimum fastening of the wooden beams:
    • 5 x ø 8.5 mm for wood screws
    • 1 x ø 13.5 mm for hexagonal or carriage bolt screw

Goes with:

Technical Data
    • Certified DIN quality steel
    • Black KTL coating
    • Weight: 2810 g
    • Sheet thickness: 4 mm (0,16 in)
    • Height of triangle over axis of GTS: 29 mm (1,14 in)
    • Article-No.: TTS2004
    • HS-Code (Customs): 73089059

 

  • Dimensions:

      • lring = 70 mm (2,76 in)
      • wsheet= 70 × 70 mm
      • lsheet = 300 mm (11,8 in; outer edge to ring) 
      • øsmall holes = 8,5 mm (3,35 in)
      • ølarge holes = 13,5 mm (5,31 in)

    Assembly

    Attention: The 2 parts of the V-bracket must always be used together. NEVER fix individual struts with the individual parts, otherwise the steel sheet may break!

    This is how it works:

    • Two GTS Screws are fixed one above the other, with a distance of 1,3 to 2,5 m:
    • The cross beam is fixed to the upper one by means of a Static Support.
    • To prevent it from tipping, the cross beam is braced with a Tree Screw and the V-bracket underneath – a stable triangular construction.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When do I use V-Bracket and when 45° Diamond Bracket?

    The V-bracket is therefore more suitable for light and medium-weight treehouses that cantilever out to the side.

    In contrast to the Diamond Bracket, the angle of the V-bracket is freely adjustable: from 60° acute to completely open. This has the advantage that you can avoid interfering branches and have more leeway in the design of the platform (eccentric platforms).

    The V-bracket can also be used to build heavy 3D triangular constructions, but these are somewhat more difficult and unstable due to the lack of a continuous back wall.

    Working with different angles makes the dimensioning and cutting of the timbers somewhat more challenging.

    How do the triangles remain movable with 2 trees?

    Both the supports on the GTS shaft and the triangle and the platform connected to it have a certain amount of play by nature and can easily buffer slight movements.

    Ideally, both trees have a trunk diameter ø > 45 cm (18 in) at the height of the platform and hardly move, then no further measures are necessary.

    If the trees are somewhat thinner and move only slightly during storms, one of the triangles can be mounted without Distance Rings to have a little more leeway.

    If it is to be expected that the trees will sway strongly, the triangles must be decoupled to avoid damage to the structure! The most important thing is that the Tree Screws are not tugged back and forth. The decoupling is done constructively by slidingly supporting the platform beams on the triangle, e.g. with our Sliding Plates.

    Which GTS Screws are best to use?

    Depending on the load situation, the GTS Allstar, Top or Friend can be installed. The top bolt with the Static Support is usually the larger one, as it takes more load. The lower Screw also takes a lot of load, but is mainly important for lateral stabilisation.

    If the log is ø >35 cm (14 in) at the height of the platform, at least one GTS Allstar should always be used. The long rod of the Allstar gives leeway if the tree is tilted forward or backward.

    How thick do the wooden beams and struts have to be?
    • Always use beams made of KVH solid structural timber (larch, Douglas fir, cedar, …) in outdoor areas.
    • Width of the beams: 6 – 12 cm (2,3 – 5 in)
    • Height of the beams: 8 – 20 cm (3,1 – 8 in)
    • The beams are installed upright / on edge.
    • Make sure that there are no large knotholes or cracks in the beam.

    The exact dimensions of the beams depend on the:

    • Load (light children’s playhouse or heavy insulated tree hotel?).
    • The greater the load, the thicker the wooden beams must be.
    • The larger the triangle, the thicker the beams must be.

    You can find out more about building the triangle in our Assembly Instructions.
