Stainless Steel Hex Lag Screws
Hex Head Lag Bolts - 304 Stainless Steel
Hex lag screws in corrosion resistant 304 stainless steel. Lag bolts, also called lag screws, are basically "large wood screws". A typical lag bolt is a 6 inches long, 3/8 diameter screw with coarse threads of a wood-screw or sheet-metal-screw threadform (but larger). Stainless Steel Lag Screws in this selection feature an external hex head. The materials are stainless steel for corrosion resistance.
Lag bolts are used to lag together lumber framing, to lag machinery feet to wood floors, and other heavy carpentry applications. These fasteners are clearly "screws" when defined by the Machinery's Handbook distinction. The term "lag bolt" has been replaced by "lag screw" in the Machinery's Handbook. However, in the minds of most tradesmen, they are "bolts", simply because they are large, with external-hex heads. In the United Kingdom, lag bolts/screws are known as coach screws.
