A lag screw, also known as a lag bolt, is a type of heavy-duty screw designed for secure fastening of heavy objects to wood or other materials. It is characterized by its large size, coarse threads, and pointed tip.

Lag screws are commonly used for tasks like attaching beams to posts, securing wooden elements in construction projects, anchoring structures to concrete or masonry surfaces and mounting heavy objects like shelves or brackets to walls. Proper installation is important to ensure the lag screw provides the desired level of stability and security. It's essential to pre-drill an appropriate pilot hole before inserting a lag screw to prevent splitting the wood and to ensure proper alignment.
