As a residential contractor, I've used this tool many times in places where it was impossible to set up a ladder from below. This tool lets you hang the ladder from the roof ridge. However, I wish to emphasize common sense and caution when using it...1.Make sure you firmly tighten this tool to your ladder...your life depends on it, 2.Do not let the ladder lay on any surface that isn't reasonably flat, for instance, don't rest the ladder on top of nailed down 2x4 roof cleats, what happens is that the roof cleats can act as fulcrums and if your weight on the ladder goes below the fulcrum(2x4), then the upper part of the ladder will lever its ridge hooks off of the ridge and down you go...I learned this one the really hard way. I know it's really just using common sense, but sometimes you just forget... 3. The use of a fall arrest harness as a backup system isn't a bad idea. I think I'd like the ridge hooks to be longer and somehow padded to protect the roof shingles. Still, when I can't use the ladder from the ground, this is the tool I reach for.

Summary, awesome! Love it!

My wife and I are in a house that has 2 levels and hanging lights on the roof above the garage was impossible and dangerous because of the slope of the roof so you couldn't do it from above, and I didn't have a ladder high enough to reach. BUT the you could get onto the ridge of the first level and then climb to the ridge of the second level. Only problem was you couldn't go down the roof at all because of the steepness of it. This meant we were going to go "lightless" for christmas this year.

I did check with people that hang lights professionally and the going rate was about $175.. Way too much for me to spend. So I did some searching and found these ridge mount ladder hooks. I had no idea something like this existed. After reading the reviews I wasn't sure if they would work because people mentioned how unsafe it was, etc. But I decided I could always return them if they didn't work so I pulled the trigger and ordered 2.

The box arrived and was beat to hell, but that was ok, these are made of steel and if it can't take the abuse of UPS getting it to my house there is no way I would trust it with my life. Good news, they were in perfect condition when I pulled them through the hole in the box.

I was using these on my little giant which I wasn't sure would work, but I am happy to say it did, it worked perfectly. I was able to secure both hooks (I ordered 2, they only come in single units) and did some initial tests by banging it and pulling on them to see if they would pop off, they didn't.

I was ready to hang the lights. I carried everything up to the roof then lifted my ladder up and walked along the ridge to the second level, put the ladder down and in about 7 seconds felt totally comfortable and confident.

This product does its job, but there isn't anything on Amazon to indicate how it works - and the picture isn't very helpful on its own. The thing is, you get two of the pictured hangers (for the indicated price). The small hook goes under the second rung from the top of your ladder. The little wheel is part of a clamp that goes over the top rung of the letter and clamps down to hold the apparatus firmly to the ladder. If you have a ladder you use for climbing on roofs, you can just leave the two brackets attached. To use it, you turn the ladder so that the wheels are down and roll it up the roof. This can be done from a stepladder or another ladder leaning agaist the wall. When the large hook is above the peak of the roof, flip the ladder over and it hangs down the roof. Great for metal roofs that are too slick to walk on.

I am a 4th generation certified master installer of roofing. When you use ladder hooks like this, you should also install a ladder jack - basically, a metal bracket, at the eve which holds the ladder as well. Hooks alone, for various reasons, can fail you. If you only use these hooks and the ladder pops out, you're dead or paralyzed. Ladder jacks are simple, just look them up. They slide up under your roofing material and then you can slide them back out. it's not always easy to nail a jack in place but it's hardly worth risking your life because something "isn't easy".

Others have mentioned putting yourself in a fall arrest but that's not always practical. Ordinarily, you have to attach the fall arrest anchor at the ridge - above you but if you're using a hook ladder, ordinarily, that precludes the fact that you can't get up there in the first place (unless you use the hook ladder to do it, but then, for the first go, you're not in the fall arrest gear and if you set up your hook ladder wrong, that's when you will find out). Point is, it won't help too much to anchor your fall arrest at the eve, climb up 12 feet and then fall - you will fall off the eve and 12 feet down before your fall is arrested which i can assure you, sucks.

If you can safely get to the ridge, from a a ladder say from the side of the gable (somethines you can scoot yourself across a ridge, and safely attach an anchor and rope, whereas other parts of the roof, the middle, etc, are not so easily reached) then by all means, use fall arrest gear, i use fall arrest stuff all the time) but if you cannot, you need to use jacks to support the base of your ladder so that you're not solely relying on the hooks.

This is professional gear and is can mean life and death so make sure you know what you are doing and thoroughly test the gear and familiarize yourself with it.
