The Bibby was the best selling new roofing tool in 2017 and is a fine solution for separating and repairing shingles when the prybars won't work.
The V-1 anchor (patent-pending and released in 2018) is developing a very loyal clientele and has many repeat clients. Most clients are replacing their old ridge anchors with V-1's for simplicity and strength. They keep a few in each company truck or gear bag. This anchor is the strongest, easiest to install roof anchor most of our clients have ever used. It must be installed through sheathing and into a suitable roof rafter with six 4" long TimberLOKs.

Bibby with Handle
Our Bibby (Patented 2017) was the best selling new roofing tool in 2017 because it makes separating well sealed asphalt shingles much easier, while also minimizing damage to adjacent shingles. When the prybar begins giving you a tough time, reach for the Bibby and use it in a gentle "sawing" action and allow the teeth to separate the shingles.
Save the old Bibby blades to fix the holes in the shingle. Simply flatten the long bend and then bend down the holding tabs 90 degrees. Apply a line of sealant on the front and a dab on the back and slip the Bibby underneath the shingles that have holes in them. Press down on the shingle so that the sealant oozes through the holes from underneath, wipe off the excess and tap the "hidden" tabs lightly with a hammer and you're done! Sprinkle shingle granules from the gutter onto the exposed sealant holes for a nearly invisible repair.
The best, strongest, easiest to install temporary and reusable roof anchor we've ever used. Our patent-pending V-1 roof anchor is made in America of heavy duty stainless steel and TIG welded in an ISO 9001 facility. It meets OSHA 1910 and 1926 requirements when installed through roof sheathing into a roof rafter using (6) TimberLOK 4" hex-drive structural wood screws. Comes with 6 heavy duty fasteners and a hex drive bit. Recommended for best use with Petzl's triact-locking Vulcan or Oxan carabiners. SHIPPING IS FREE FOR ORDERS OVER $300.
SLATOR Roof Bracket
Meet's OSHA's criteria for a fall protection anchor when fastened and used according to Slator, LLC's instructions and when the substructure is capable of supporting a 5000 load.
HOW IT WORKS:
The SLATOR conforms with OSHA 1926, 1910 requirements when installed and used according to the instructions. It fastens to a steep slate, asphalt shingle, cedar shake roof and firmly clamps a ladder into position, allowing any tradesman working on the roof easier and safer access to perform their work. Used properly, the SLATOR will help protect the roof from wear and tear, save you time, energy, and perhaps, your life. We recommend you get some, watch the tutorials and gain easier and safer access to do your best work.
Bibbys: Replacement 6 - Pack
When the Bibby (Patented 2017) gets dull from separating shingles, save it to fix holes in shingles. You know, the holes left by roof anchors, satelite dishes and the ones left by the siding guys and their pump jack stand offs! Keep a 6 - Pack of sharp replacements in every work truck. You can even use the Bibby to prune small tree branches interfering with the roof!
Tip: Cleaning your blade with paint thinner or acetone once they get gummy from the shingles saves you money by not having to replace your blades so often.
USE NEW FASTENERS FOR EVERY INSTALLATION.

1. These fasteners are tough! They have been thoroughly tested and are part of an OSHA-compliant system.
2. They "zip" right in! (We use a cordless impact driver)
3. They are not fully threaded and make is easy to "FIND" the roof rafters, every time!
4. They have a coating that wears away so you can tell if they have ever been used before.
5. The old fasteners can be saved for structural repairs or other uses.
