AGAWAM, Mass., Jan. 2023 – FastenMaster, a division of OMG, Inc., has introduced VersaLOK, a heavy-duty structural wood screw for use on a wide range of interior and exterior wood-to-wood applications including angle bracing, retaining walls, and carrying beam connections. VersaLOK is the latest addition to the company’s industry-leading LOK line of structural wood fasteners.
The highly versatile VersaLOK provides the strength of a ½‑inch lag bolt, with the installation ease and speed of a LOK. The new fastener is designed with a flat head for flush installation and features a TORX® ttap® drive system for stable, wobble-free installation.
In addition, heavy-duty VersaLOK fasteners are engineered to deliver maximum strength and provide an aggressive three-inch thread design for greater holding power.The result is a fastener with higher shear strength than ½‑inch lag bolts and, as with allLOK line fasteners, installs quickly without pre-drilling.
VersaLOK fasteners are available in 6‑, 8- and 10-inch lengths and are IBC/IRC code compliant (ICC-ES ESR-1078), ACQ approved, and offer FastenMaster’s exclusive ProjectLife® coating guaranteed for the life of the project.
“VersaLOK is the latest addition to our category-creating LOK Line of structural fasteners,” said Nikki Long, structural business unit director. “VersaLOK’s ProjectLife™ coating is guaranteed for the life of the project and speaks to the quality of products we continue to develop for our professional contractors.”
