Lag Screws, sometimes called Lag Bolts, usually require a pre-drilled hole. They are usually larger diameter, with a wood-style thread, and are used to connect wood or like materials that need to bear a heavy load.
Lag screws are some of the strongest fasteners. They are very large & are designed to support much heavier loads than wood screws or sheet metal screws. They have coarse threads and a tapered point which allow them to support a lot of torque. Lag screws are only available with a hex head and can be installed using a ratchet or nut driver.
Common applications of Lag Screws are:
- • Lumber
- • Heavy Duty Construction
- • Wooden Playground Equipment
- • Bridges
- • Railroads
