Product Overview

These lag or expansion shields are used for fastening lag screws into fastening into wood and concrete. The expansion shield acts as an anchoring point into a concrete slab or foundation, expanding when the screw threads are engaged during installation. Common uses include frames, and outdoor play equipment. When used in conjunction with a lag screw it can also be used in many masonry applications. Use in pre-drilled hole. The length of a lag screw is measured from the underside of the head to the pointed tip of the screw.

Asked by DD November 9, 2020

Answer

Lag shields should be installed with a minimum embedment equal to the length of the lag shield (flush with the concrete surface at minimum). If your slab is 4 in thick, you may consider drilling a 3 in deep hole for a 2 in long lag shield in order for the anchor to be centered in the slab. Be sure to size the lag screw to fully engage into the embedded lag shield. Please be sure to confirm with your local building department for any applicable code compliance.

I had to mount a couple of boards onto the side of the house for the deck I was building. The location where I was mounting those boards was on brick. I drilled holes in the brick and then inserted the Lag Shields and then mounted the boards to the brick. I actually used 20 Lag Shields and 5 inch zinc Lags to mount the boards to the brick. Was all very easy.

300+ pound rated lag shield. At 2 1/2 inches long, this is meant to anchor heavy items in concrete. Lag shields are essential if you're mounting or anchoring anything of weight into concrete. Something I particularly like about these lag shields is that the spreading teeth start about one quarter of the way down. That means the shield will start biting into the concrete early in the process. Although medium duty rated, 300 plus pounds is significant.

I have used these type of anchors before when I have needed to secure something in some sort of masonry product from concrete to red brick and have always trusted them to hold well and not to break while being retched down tightly. An additional measure that I have always taken because I have used them in commercial areas where I wanted to make doubly sure they performed as needed I would squirt some liquid nail down in the hold before inserting the anchor. Does it need liquid nail?? Probably not but its always made me feel better at the end of the job.
