Contractors and homeowners are quickly moving from lag bolts to structural screws and fasteners for wood-to-wood connections for a variety of reasons. The LOK Line by FastenMaster consists of a variety of high-quality, rigorously-tested and code-approved wood screws and heavy-duty fasteners designed to improve structural integrity and vastly improve work and cost efficiency.
LOK Line’s wood screws are thinner and feature a sharper point than lag bolts, resulting in increased precision and no pre-drilling. Depending on your specific project, there are a wide variety of LOK screw sizes that are intended for highly specific purposes and functions. The TimberLOK Heavy Duty Wood Screw, for instance, is available in four sizes and is designed for use in attaching rafters or trusses to a double top plate. HeadLOK, a heavy-duty, flathead wood screw is the best choice for replacing ⅜" lag bolts and is ideal for decks, fences, SIPs, kitchen cabinets, and more.
Save time by skipping the pre-drilling and wood splitting with lag screws and work faster, easier, and stronger with the FastenMaster LOK Line of structural wood screws and fasteners from Deck Expressions.
Lag and Through-Bolt Replacement. LedgerLOK replaces lag screws and through-bolts, has been coated with a proprietary three-step coating process that protects against corrosion (even in pressure treated wood) and is ACQ approved.
The HeadLOK flat head fastener is a heavy-duty structural wood screw requires no pre-drilling and offers higher design shear than 3/8" lag screws. HeadLOK zips right in and creates a great finished look.
The ThruLOK system combines the strength of a through-bolted connection with the speed of a LOK fastener with no pre-drilling required. It can be used for applications including:
FlatLOK is a multi-purpose structural wood screw for fastening multi-ply LVL, girder trusses and multi-ply lumber beams.
TimberLOK is a heavy duty wood screw for applications such as attaching rafter or trusses to the top plate, landscape timbers, fences, decks, headers, stair stringers and more.
