Get To Know The Basics of LAG Bolts

Treehouse LAG Bolts are one of the most effective and practical means to carry lighter weights when TABs are not quite necessary. Our tree house lag bolts come in 1” & 1¼” versions with varying lengths. LAG Bolts may be made out of steel, stainless steel, or silicon bronze, and are hot-dip galvanized to accommodate any and all projects as needed. Lag bolt provides a longer-lasting connection due to its length!

Making sure that the bolts are strong enough to match the design load of your treehouse is one of the most important safety measures you can take when constructing your treehouse. The amount a LAG Bolt can hold depends on the tree type, bending moment, bolt placement, and weather.
