Internal strand hold ups are designed to keep strand properly positioned when setting up beams with depressed strand. The strand hold up has a base plate to distribute the downward force evenly over the soffit and a vertical plate. The vertical plate has rows of holes, positioned to hold the strand at the proper height that are fitted with strand rollers.

The strand hold ups are positioned on top of the soffit between two headers. Strand is pulled over the rollers and fed through the header to the hold down rollers anchored under the soffit. Once strand is pulled into place, it is tensioned in the harped position.
