These heavy-duty fixings have a hexagonal or square head, resembling a screw and a bolt. The threaded shaft ensures a secure hold, while the bolt-like head can be tightened or loosened using an impact socket or wrench.
How Should Coach Screws Be Used?
One of the main reasons for using coach screws is the strong hold they provide, making them ideal for securing heavy timber to timber or metal to timber. They are versatile and robust enough to be used on masonry and concrete too. When using coach screws, you first need to drill a pilot hole. A twist drill bit is recommended for timber and wood, while you’ll need an SDS drill bit for masonry.
