LOG FASTENERS

OlyLog Log Screws

In 1993, Olympic Fasteners developed the OMG Log Hog Screw, the first threaded log home fastener which required no predrilling. Since its introduction, the Log Hog has changed the way log homes are constructed.

Here's why:

  • No Predrilling! The Log Hog zips right through all species of logs.

  • Self Countersinking head design: Buries itself below the log surface and allows for natural log settling.

  • Removable: Just put the drill in reverse and back it out.

  • Strong pull down power.

  • No sledge hammer damage.

  • Greatly reduced labor time.

  • 100% American Made.
