Temporary Roof Anchor


Safety Direct's temporary roof anchors are designed for single use applications during the roofing process. Constructed of galvanized steel, they are an economical way to keep workers safe.

Each anchor can be used by only one person. The anchors must be fastened to solid lumber on the main roof truss using 4 inch (100 mm) Ardox nails. The lifeline must be attached to the anchor using either a locking snap hook or an auto-locking carabiner.


Failure to follow the installation instructions can result in premature pull out of the anchor. After one use, the temporary anchor should be removed. If left in place, then the tab should be bent over and covered with shingles.
