Product Description

Welded Eye Screw 8mm x 130mm  (or Lag Screw Eyes)  are fastening points that anchor a run of  wire into a post. Choose a shorter Lag Eye Screw for attachment into either pine or hardwood.  There is more than enough bite. And you avoid the possibility of torquing off a longer screw into hard timber.  Choosing a longer length of Welded Lag Eye Screws is only appropriate if you want the ‘eye’ to protrude (visibly) from your attachment post. The eye on the Welded Eye Screw 8mm x 130mm is much larger than the Mini Eye Screws and is specifically formed to both work with either a manually  or a hydraulically swaged jaw end on the wire run – and to replicate the look of a Welded Eye Bolt (for metal)

Usage: Longer Lag Eye Screws work best in situations where you need to go into concrete or go through render or siding to hit an anchoring stud. You may need the extra length/bite for use with a standard Plastic Plug.  To make the job easier, try using a proper sized Fork Terminal in your drill as a driving tool. Simply put, IT ROCKS – saves your wrists, speeds  up the install and demonstrates a bit of ingenuity. As well, Thimbles, screws, bolts, and saddles are all available from our on-line Store.

Usage Tips

  • Eye Screw fittings are attachment points that do not attach directly to wire rope. They are designed to attach to a flat or round substrate. They are strongest when the fasteners are under a tension load.
  • Wire rope passed through a screw eye in a loop, and best practice recommends the wire be 'protected' by a thimble. The thimble acts to distribute the load and prevent the wire being pulled through a radius that is tighter/smaller than is recommended. These fittings are designed to work with open turnbuckles, closed turnbuckles, manually swaged fittings, and hydraulically swaged terminals.

Installation Considerations

Longer Lag Eye Screws work best in situations where you need to

  • go into concrete (and you need the extra length/bite for use with a standard Plastic Plug); or
  • go through render or siding before you hit an anchoring stud; or
  • if you want the 'eye' to protrude (visibly) from your attachment post.

In application, the 50mm length is ideal for fastening to a common corner post as the screws are very robust/strong (use an appropriate pilot hole) and because of the length, they will NOT collide in a 90mm x 90mm corner post (this is the most common size of timber posts). And contrary to popular belief, the longer lengths are NOT stronger - in fact it is more likely to torque off in hardwood. So unless you know you need the extra depth or clearance - we strongly recommend shorter Lag Eye Screws.
