We've been field testing our patent-pending V-1 roof anchor (shown in the background photo above) for the last six months on slate and asphalt shingle roofs. The V-1 (installed with only 6 fasteners just like the SLATOR) is now our preferred anchor for all of our roof work. It provides fall protection in any direction when used with Petzl's ANSI rated Vulcan carabiner. The V-1 allows us to safely complete work on the ridge, and over the ridge without having to install or remove a cumbersome ridge anchor. Expected release date: April 2018.
