It does not last forever but I have been using the one I bought at Lowes Hardware store for over a year now.  The one I bought at the store came with a 25 foot rope.  I went online at Lowes and bought a 50 foot rope.

How are you tying off? Particularly on tile roofs?

I was thinking about purchasing an anchor to put down the vent pipe, is there a better way?

I bought a vent pipe anchor from AC and have very happy with it. Solves the tie off problems. I figure if I ever have an accident I will have a plumbing vent repair to take care of, but it's better than drilling holes in a roof to install a roof anchor.

 I agree with you Ray, as I am using the same method.

i am temporarily using a marine anchor rope which probably wouldn't meat osha regs but its not a weak rope and was cheap at wally-world. i use the roof anchor that ac sells but lately i've been seeing mostly large diameter plumbing pipes so I don't feel confident it will catch.

What do you tie off to in that case? I heard Bill Booz saying the vent pipes are usually too big in MD to use the roof anchor, but I have not tried it, yet.

In that case I inform the owner that I will only be able to clean what I can from a ladder.  Which is usually most of it.

that scene from crouching tiger hidden dragon just popped into my head where they are running/floating around on the rooftops. Maybe I need to just hire some monks trained in shaolin light-body technique....in all seriousness I would like to know if anyone has ideas on how to adapt the roof anchor to larger vent pipes. maybe something that attaches to the bottom to increase its diameter??

I never tried the vent pipe anchor thing nor would I, if the vent is on the left side of the roof how would it do you any good while working on the right side of the roof, their are plenty of other things to tie off to like decks down below, trees, porch post, or a small water tank filled with water. It does not take but a little bit of weight to work due to all the friction between the rope and shingles especially going up and over the ridge, I know, I expermented, I bet I could hold someone with the strength of my arm, thats how little weight you need. have you ever used a cable weight machine with bad pullies, you will understand what Im talking about.

Anyone used the safety device that sits on the top ridge tiles and is clamped on to the eaves of both sides of the home?

 Yorkie I'm assuming your the kinda guys that like to sit around and think of a thousand different ways to tie a rope off, instead of just taking action lol

the only reason I said that is because I do the same chit, but I just told you how, but you want to come up with a more difficult way lol. how about trying to rig up a sky hook or something?

 Simon, are you talking about the savety device that screws into the roof? If so most home owners do not like the idea of screwing screws in their roof...

What I seldom see but like are when the homes are designed & build with screw tie offs on the ridge row of the roof.

 Marcus, that should be mandatory that homes have a hook ring on the center of the roof, wouldn't that be great, why don't they think of these things when the put the roof on??

 Clyde, I could not agree with you more.  Some newer homes are predesigned and have these put in the roof.
