installation suggestions

installing on existing roof, with 1/2 plywood - how critical is it to actually nail into the frame, as opposed to just the plywood? Also, should some roofing material be used at nail holes to prevent leaking? Thanks
Asked by: Joseph
They're figuring that if a man with his equipment weighs less than 310 lbs. fall 6 feet before the safety rope snaps tight and stops his fall an anchor capable holding 5000 lbs will hold. If you just nail into the plywood it's not going to hold. You have to nail into the rafters. Since this is installed on the ridge, you remove the ridge cap shingles and if there is a vent slide it under the vent (you have to be able to move the vent enough to drive the nails in). After you nail it down you replace the shingles and only the D loops stick out. They're down slope from the ridge cap shingles, one on each side of the ridge. All the nail holes are covered by the shingles. I also covered the all the nail heads with some roof sealer for extra protection. if you damage the ridge cap shingles you will have to replace them.

Will this device fit over a ridge vent and still be able to secure to a roof safely?

Asked by: Jon
No, you have to slide it under the ridge vent and nail it solidly into the roof rafters. If you can't remove the ridge shingles without damaging them you will have to make new ones. I was able to reuse mine.

Permanent Roof Anchor is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works and is not to hard to install Works fine. Installation required me remove a few ridge shingles without damaging them and to get under the ridge vent. I had a slight problem due to the fact that the roof rafters did not line up evenly, so I had to split the difference and angle some of the nails. If they had been farther off I couldn't have used this anchor without sistering roof rafters at the ridge to create a solid nailing point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for essential safety equipment Effective fall prevention tie-off. Looks great (nearly invisible) when installed. Comes complete as packaged, with needed fasteners. The only difficult part is in properly locating the rafter centers to nail it to, since they are covered with roofing prior to installation of the anchor.
