Securing your ladder while you're on the roof. Best method?

(Kenton Shepard, CMI) #1

There are so many different conditions, some you can use a bungee, some there's no place to hook it. What's the best method for a wide variety of conditions?

What I have is a 36" bungee, with a 1" spring clamp on each end of bungee. I drilled a hole in the clamps and then bent the metal hooks down so that the clamps will not come loose. I'm able to clip onto the drip edge without damage.

Oops :shock:

I use bungee or have assistant hold ladder while I'm roof. One of the benefits of the team approach.
