The fault surface is usually near vertical and the footwall moves either left or right or laterally with very little vertical motion. Strike-slip faults with left-lateral motion are also known as sinistral faults. Those with right-lateral motion are also known as dextral faults.Each is defined by the direction of movement of the ground on the opposite side of the fault from an observer.

At a strike slip fault,rocks on both sides of the fault surface move past one another without much upward or downward movement. Shearing forces push on the rocks from different but not opposite direction.
