When are shear lugs required on pipe supports?

Shear lugs are primarily required whenever a clamping support is being loaded in the axial direction of the pipe. It should be noted that we are not relying upon the clamping force of the support to withstand the axial load, but we are relying on the shear lugs and the clamping contact to absorb the axial load.
