Schanz's screw?


Explanation:
you are spelling it two different ways.
in one place it is Schanzenschraube, in
the other it is Schanz'schenschraube...?
In any case, it is obviously a type of screw. If the second spelling is the
right one, it could be a proper name: Schanz's screw. If the first one is correct, then I can't help you.

Schanz screw


Explanation:
See the refs for two of many examples of the English term. The following site has a picture, and even if it leaves something to be desired in terms of clarity, it is certainly not a lag screw:
