Lag screws (LS) are 1/4" diameter with blackened, square, pyramid head. Lags are pointed with wood screw threads.
Why choose one style over another? Installations vary and sometimes special situations apply. Driven pintles are used in stone, masonry or very period restorations. Jamb pintles are mortised into the door jamb and are very common today; as well as simpler to install. Surface mounted pintles can be used anywhere, and are especially valuable for shutters and situations where face mounting is essential.
Wrought Iron Screws, August 19, 2015 By Terri (Steelville, MO)
Enjoyed doing business with Horton Brasses! Not only were they very helpful, but they followed up with me to see if they could offer any more help with the project I was working on. The black wrought iron screws looked perfect with my cast iron fireback. I couldn't have been happier. Thank you!
