VersaLOK provides the strength of a 1/2” lag bolt with the installation ease and speed of a LOK. The flat-head, heavy-duty wood screw comes in 6”, 8” and 10” lengths, does not require predrilling, offers higher design shear strength than 1/2” lag bolts, and has a TORX ttap drive system for stable installation and a ProjectLife coating guaranteed for the life of the project. It’s ideal for angle bracing, retaining walls, and carrying beam connections.

The MVP Multipurpose Wood Screw is designed for framing, cabinetry, and other wood-to-wood applications. The 10-gauge fasteners feature a TORX ttap drive, SureSink head to prevent spin outs, ProjectLife coating for superior corrosion resistance, and SureStart Point for easy installation, in lengths from 1” to 4”.
