Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do you know which size launch lug to purchase?

A. Use 1/8" diameter lugs on rockets that use up to a D size rocket engine.

Use 3/16" diameter lugs on large diameter rockets (greater than 2 inches) or that use D or E size rocket engines.

Use 1/4" diameter lugs on large and heavy rockets. Typically 2 inches in diameter or larger, and up to a G size rocket engines.

For high power rockets, use rail buttons.

Q. Where can I get a launch rod for the 3/16" diameter launch lugs?

A. Hardware stores carry 3/16" diameter steel rod that works great. That is what we recommend. The 3/16" rod will fit in ALL of the launch pads that we carry.
