Uses of Lag Bolts

Submitted by • October 15, 2020

Lag Bolts are used for heavier materials because they can withstand a lot of weight. They are of the strongest and toughest screws in the market and are commonly known as Lag Screws. Their general use is to connect heavy lumbers and materials. Lags are not used with a nut or fasteners, they work by burrowing the coarse threads to create a type of joint friction. In simpler words, lag bolts are screws with a wrench head and wood screw threads that are terminating at one point.

Lag bolts are known for their incredible strength. A single quarter-inch lag bolt can hold up to 13,000 pounds. An eighth-inch lag bolt has the strength of holding up over 3000 pounds.
