    Knee brace placement

    Related to my post earlier, if you have a 6x6 deck support post supporting a 3-2x10 beam, can you use structural screws to fasten a 6x6 knee brace to support the end of a cantilevered beam, essentially eliminating the cantilever since it's now supported by a knee brace?

    If the structural screws are insufficient, then could you use something like Simpson a "KBS1Z Knee-Brace Stabilizers?"

    Thanks

    My husband used Simpson when he built an extension for us near the house. I do not know if it is suitable for your purposes, but for our software
