Putting It Together: Easy as 1-2-3

You might be wondering, "Okay, but how do I install this thing?" Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's a quick rundown on the  SSRA2 Roof Jack Instructions:

  • 1.Remove the two top bolts and d-rings from both SSRA1 anchors and install them on the seams approximately 8’ apart. Once all set screws are properly torqued, place the SSRA2 Roof Jack adapter on top of the SSRA1 anchor and use the same two top bolts to secure.
  • 2.Adjust the feet to stabilize it on the seam.
  • 3.Tighten the three stainless steel wing nuts.
  • 4.Install a wood screw into each of the red roof jacks into the 10’ wood walkboard – and just like that, you're done!

It's a breeze, taking only a minute or two. By adding the SSRA2 Roof Jack Adapter, you're not just checking a safety box; you're giving your standing seam roof anchor system a power-up. Please note that you should have a couple of extra SSRA1 anchors on hand to attach to a nearby seam for an anchor point for each worker.
