Blue Book Article 12.04.020

Hold-downs (or tie-downs) are load path elements that resist uplift and overturning effects in wall panels with wood or metal light framing. They function by connecting the boundary element of a wall panel to supporting structural elements such as foundations, grade beams, slabs, other frame or wall elements, or to connect with hold-downs in an adjacent story.
