With respect to the correct construction of kicker lifts / foot ties within scaffold structure :-
When I was taught as a trainee, the correct methodology is that both the foot tie ledger and the foot tie 'ledger transom' i.e the tube at right angles to the ledger, should 'both' be connected to the upright/standard with load baring right angle couplers, so as to provide the 'tripod effect' and hence keep the scaffold and worker safe when the scaffold is 'active' during the processes of erection and dismantling.

Can I get clarification from someone please?
Thanks for reading.
