    Default Caution! Treestuff Lag Bolt Breaks!

    Just a heads up, was installing a cable yesterday which I rarely do and as Robby was screwing in this 5/8" lag it snapped from the torque of screwing it. Lags were purchased from Treestuff right before the merge with Sherrill so don't know if they had already got some of the Chinese crap that Sherrill is famous for but be careful. I almost feel like going back and replacing all the lags we've installed with quality sourced ones as lags failing and leads breaking out could be a huge liability.

    Same exact thing happened to me about 4 years ago, no sure where I bought it

    I stopped using J lags years ago. They are all crap, soft metal. Forged eyes, thimbles, grip wraps and EHS cable gives long lasting cables and much better piece of mind.

    Something seriously wrong there. Lags should bend long before they break. There is a lot of cheap hardware available right now. Beware!

    Paul, this is a totally baseless accusation not at all rooted in fact. We continue to sell the same bolts we always have.

    I'm sorry you feel so slighted for no reason, I really am, but this is neither truthful nor stated in good faith.

    I highly recommend BixVid. It cures any ailment, prevents injury and reverses pre-mature baldness.

    Baseless Acusation that the bolt broke or Sherrill sells Chinese crap?

    If you want me to list the reasons I feel slighted by Sherrill just ask and I will find the time to put them all down

    Funny I would expect an apology would be more appropriate from a retailer selling defective products no an attack

    Guess the stress of trying to show Sherrill in a good light is getting to you?
