Hammered Ball Head Lag

Our HCL-03 Hammered Ball head lag has a unique look that lends itself to a rugged industrial look. If you will be ordering the Raw finish please keep in mind the unfinished color of this item is raw metal and typically looks darker like a wrought iron finish with possible silver tints in the sunlight.

    • Due to the spherical shape of the head of the lag, it is very difficult to drive these lags into the wall with a socket or wrench
    • Wrap the head of the bolt in a thick cloth or spare leather
    • Use a pipe wrench or pliers to twist the lag into place

More of an Accent Piece

Hi, I absolutely love the screws. In order to not damage the finish I wrapped Self Gripping Bandage around the teeth of a pliers. I was able to grip and hold the screw head while screwing them in (after drilling pilot holes). I purchased a piece of Spalted Maple online from I then accented that piece by framing it in Walnut and installed it with your screws. They really made a room accent piece more of an accent piece.

Small details sure do make a big impact on a finished space! Typically we suggest to cover the heads with work gloves or similar material, but we always like hearing what customers come up with. Different install methods work better for some people, so thank you for letting us know how you did it and I'm sure someone will find this helpful!

The perfect wreath hanger!

We often have wreaths hanging on the double front doors and since we were restoring the 120-year-old doors, we decided to also replace the two miscellaneous screws which we had been using with something which would make a statement at those times when the wreaths are briefly absent. The 1" Hammered Ball Head Lag screw centered at the correct height on each door and painted Honorable Blue to match the color of the door certainly does the trick. The screws are solid, well made, and pretty much a piece of art on their own, especially in Honorable Blue!
