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?"
