Hineri (捻り) – twist bracket, also known as a hurricane tie, used to hold roofing purlins or rafters to the larger beams (Hari) they sit on. Here in Japan, there are specialized nails that must be used called “N-nails“, which for this purpose are typically brown or black, 38 mm in length, and considerably thicker than normal nails (tetsu-kugi).
