This is literally a life-saver. Super easy to use, really portable, instant setup. Is better than the Goat IMO because it gives you so much more range of movement on the roof. Having the mobility of using a rope gives me the range I need to do inspections. Plus I can throw it in the back of a SUV or trunk, no need for a big rack. All around a great product.
The ultimate "first man up" roof anchoring system is designed for 6/12 to 12/12 roof pitches for temporary or long term anchorage. Perfect for Contractors, Roofers, Solar Installers, Chimney Sweeps, Telecom Installers, Gutter Installers, Insurance Adjusters, Rescue, and DIY Homeowners! The RidgePro allows for safe temporary anchoring from the ladder to the peak of the roof. Faster than traditional chicken ladders and also allows for horizontal mobility because you are secured to a vertical lifeline. The base is padded to protect the roof and accepts four 5/16" lg bolts to make it an OSHA Compliant as an anchoring device. The body is made from durable, lightweight aluminum with a stainless rope shackle making it mobile and incredibly strong! Contractors are switching to the RidgePro and saving on walkboards and scaffolding costs!
This is the latest version of the RIDGEPRO™ and it is compliant with OSHA standard 1926 Subpart M for a single user when anchored, withstanding and exceeding 5,000 pounds of static strength force. When not anchored, OSHA does not regulate "non-anchors" so you would be working with The RIDGEPRO™ as an inspection tool, which grants 15 minutes of time on the roof before you must anchor.
Important: The standard RIDGEPRO™ does not include a pole. This latest version of the RidgePro uses a positive locking Sherlock RO57 fiberglass telescoping pole that extends from 8 feet to 16 feet. The older version used a proprietary threaded tip pole with a locking pin. The pole for the latest model is now available for purchase at most paint supply and box stores. Please note that is will be necessary to remove the threaded tip from the Sherlock RO57 purchased from paint and box stores. If the RidgePro Plus model is purchased from us, it will not come with a threaded tip and will be ready to use right out of the box. Please see the RidgePro Plus model here.
