Truss plates when trusses are not adequately secured or braced, can pull out, also leaving the webbing loose and the truss able to collapse.
The bent truss shown below is due to an unsupported top chord. Supported by tile battens on one side, but as part of this roof was conventional cut with rafters following a ridge supported by girder trusses, the unsupported side has bowed. The maximum allowable bow is 50mm. No truss should ever be altered in any way from the original design.
