The Ring is split across at one point, the split being in the form of a tongue and groove. The purpose of the tongue and groove is to provide for possible expansion or contraction of the timber. When the Ring is embedded in the timber, it can expand or contract with the wood, and thus at all times forms a tight and rigid connection. The Ring is sunk into the groove of one of the two facing members, and the other half into the groove of the other member, so that when the two members are joined face to face, the Ring is wholly embedded between them. The connecting through bolt, which formerly carried the stress in timber joints, is relieved of this stress by the embedded Split Ring, the bolt principally serves the purpose of holding two members together. A special tool is available for cutting the grooves in the timber. For loads please refer to the relevant TECO Declaration of Performance or contact TECO for assistance.
