Dog spike, just like the name, it looks like a dog’s head, is mainly used on T-shaped rail to fasten T-shaped rail track to wooden tie that have an L-shaped head and a square shank.

Dog Spike Features and Advantages

  • The bottom of the head is sloped to match the slope of the flange of a rail and the tip is wedge-shaped, not pointed.
  • The wedge is driven into the tie across the grain, which means the wedge is parallel to the track and will have about twice as much holding power as one driven with the grain. 
  • The square cross section gives a railroad dog spike much higher holding strength than a fastener having the same amount of metal but a circular cross section has; roughly speaking, about 50% more.
  • Dog spikes are available in varying sizes to suit most applications.
  • Dog spikes provide a strong, simple and inexpensive solution to securing rail track.
