Lag Screw Anchors are special screws that hold Small Lag Screws in place. They are a great choice for small to medium net installation projects. They come in 100-packs and are designed to be inserted into the desired surface. You must drill a hole of the same diameter as the anchor and length plus an additional 1/4" for the tip of the screw to protrude.

When using a lag screw anchor, you must first drill a hole in the surface of the base material. You should use a carbide drill bit that is at least one-half inch larger than the anchor's inner diameter. Afterwards, insert the lag screw into the hole. Once the screw is inserted, make sure the hole is clean and free of debris. Then, install the fixture over the anchor.

When using a lag screw anchor, you should make sure the weight of the item to be hung is within the anchor's weight limit. While drywall is an excellent material for creating clean lines in your home, it is not very reliable for holding heavy objects. You risk having a crumbling mess if you screw a lag bolt into drywall. In contrast, studs can provide strong, dependable support.

Lag Screw Anchors can be used in light to medium-duty applications, as they require only one set screw. If you need to install a heavy load, double-threaded anchors can be used for such projects. However, you should know that a double-threaded anchor requires a machine threaded fastener.

Lag Screw Anchors are also called "drive anchors." This type of anchor is used to attach heavy objects to a support structure. These anchors are made of high-strength spring steel or aluminum with a stainless steel pin. When driven, the anchor expands to grip the interior of the hole. There are several head styles. Choose a stud type anchor if you only need a temporary fixture. If you need an anchor that will stay in place for a long time, use zinc alloy tag shields.
