    Default looking for rafter straps

    I need to secure these rafters to the cinderblock top plate. They are just toe nailed in now. I want something stronger that i can screw in w/o removing the planking. Any ideas?

    I might install rafter ties, but Im looking for alternatives.

    I have four sagging rafters in the garage in my home in 1952. They are 2x6 and all side by side. All four are knots in about the same location, resulting in sagging. I got 4 2x6s that sister, but a lot of weight side to side. So Im thinking of using angle iron, as least for two of them.
