Galvanized Steel Shoulder Eye Bolts w/ Threaded Lag Screw : I plan to screw this into a 4 x 4 and hang a loft from the ceiling (one corner only) I think the total weight will be less than 500 lbs, will this work ??

Olie,I would look to use a through bolt, drilled and secured with washer, lock washer and nut, to depend on the threads to hold your loft seems to ask a lot from the screw. just a thought.

Maybe. I'm quite certain the lag screw itself can handle that amount of weight but the most pressing issue is how it is screwed in and the direction of the weight involved. Mine are used at a right angle to the threads.
