Re: Lag Bolts

Good one, David!
 
The origin of the term is not quite clear or well explained.  I suspect that it has something to do with barrel lags.  Similarly, those bolts were used in coaches - hence another name for them - coach bolts/screws.

Idle wondering:

Why are lag bolts called "lag" bolts?
