When choosing a variety of wood lag screws , consider the thickness of any materials that you will be working with. Approximately two-thirds of the screw length should extend into the second piece of material, but it should not go all the way through the other side. If you are putting up sheet rock or wallboard, you will need a type of long screw that made just for wallboard.

Particle board requires special screws that have wide, sharp threads, as well. For a repair or assembly that you anticipate to be permanent, you might think about using a one-way screw. These secure things permanently and are extremely difficult to remove.

Applying soap or wax over the threads could make it simpler to drive the screw. You'd be better off using candle wax if you can, because over time the soap can cause the threads to rust.

The advice listed here can be applicable to any kind of use of lag screws, however my expertise originates from mounting ceiling brackets for ceiling mounted garage storage racks. These types of shelves require 2" insertion into the stud. Most of these shelves include 3" lag screws since they need to pass through drywall plus the width of the mounting bracket.

Another common problem is usually that people over tighten the lag screws. Do not over tighten the hardware. Should you crank on the head once the top of the lag screw is already flat against the drywall, you chance twisting off the head and having the threads stuck inside the stud.

This could cause problems with connecting your ceiling mounting bracket because you might be installing across the studs, which means you will not be able to just slide the bracket over a bit to make a new hole. Turn the screws just until the head touches the ceiling bracket. The Hex Lag Screw do not need to be tightened down any more.
