“Painting high on a steep tin roof. This kit made me feel safe and am certain would have saved me from severe injury if I had fallen. The harness was quick to adjust and put on and take off. Clipping up to the rope with the shackle was easy. The chain moved up and down the safety rope with one hand operation making it easy to take up the slack when needed. The anchor looked a little different that what is pictured and could fit any pitch roof to flat. I won’t do work up high without it anymore. I will probably buy some permanent anchors to leave in place in my house for future re-use and maintenance. It all fits in the 5-gallon bucket it came in when done for easy storage.
