"Bought these to paint some chimney stacks, cheaper than a cat ladder, 10 or 15 minutes to attach them to my ladder, the good thing about these hooks are that once attached to my treble ladder I can adjust the ladder to the size of the roof and not be regulated by a single length cat ladder which would be too short for the job I bought these for, Very sturdy and heavy duty, the wheels to slide it up the roof pitch are suitable for the job, the hooks are quite deep so they fit over different angles of ridge tile easily. Worth the money"
"These are good and solid and fit well on to an normal ladder. The ladder was as safe and secure as any other roof ladder and the hooks did not flex or move even with a big load.
I was hoping they might come off and on more easily than they do so I could switch between normal ladder and roof ladder. 12 nylocks hold the hooks on so they are obviously aimed at converting a ladder more permanently, it takes about 15 mins to fit and remove the hooks."
"Handy ladder ridge hook for use with normal extension ladder. Offers a stable support for working on the roof. You do have to have the right length extension ladder so bear this in mind. Overall good purchase, it done the job as did not fall off the roof."
"These hooks are ideal for anyone who needs a roof ladder occasionally. Didn't take to long to assemble and with use of some pipe lagging on side of ladder for protection for the roof worked like a treat. The only thing that could be improved is some sort of cover for the nuts and bolts as I ended up sitting on them and they are sharp. If I had been up on the roof for longer I would have needed to get something to cover them up. Once removed can be stored easily for next time. Thanks. Don't hesitate if you are considering them as they do work, are very strong and I felt safe when on the roof."
"These are perfect for those of us who occasionally need to access our roof but do not wish to invest in a specialist roof ladder.
Although it takes about 10 minutes to assemble the first time, subsequent fittings will be much quicker.
In use these are nice and stable enabling confident access. I needed to refit the cowl on my chimney - compared to getting somebody out to do the 5 minute job I am already quids in, not to mention the lack of hassle!"
"Like most people who only go onto the roof rarely, I didn't need a professional ladder so this is ideal for occaisional use. Wheels are a bit hard on the tiles when positioning the ladder but overall it's a good product."
"I used 1 on each of 2 ladders to make 2 roofing ladders. This enabled me to gain full and easy access to all parts of my roof, which enabled me to make repairs to extensive hail damage which would have cost thousands to get a roofer to do.
The only down side is they take quite a while to fit.. One of the ladders I used was half of my extension ladder, so I had to take the hook on & off a few times.... Oh, and they could do with some plastic covers to cover the ends of the U bolts. that stick out from the nuts, once secured; they tend to bite knees & other body parts if you're not careful.
Apart from that, they're absolutely brilliant. But working on roofs can be dangerous; Gravity has no sympathy, so do please, get & use a safety harness!!!"
