A bracing connection is the fixing that holds bracing in place and to transfer loads into the bracing. Bracing holds the structure stable by transferring sideways loads (ie: not gravity, but wind or earthquake loads) down to the ground. It helps keep the structure upright and square when these loads come on to the building.
