Replacement Part for Roof Rake


I have one of these snow roof rakes but lost one of the silver springs in the third section (surely in the snow) so I cant use the full length.

I already tried using a bolt and screw but it comes undone very quickly and is a hassle to remove when I need to remove a section to shorten. I'd much rather find that part.

If it isn't in the tube, consider a piece of all thread cut to length with a clip on each side. Knock the sharp edges and burrs off the ends so you don't hurt self. Or if You be real good a couple of grooves can be cut cut in a smooth bolt with a dremmel cut off wheel and round the ends so it looks purdy.

Perfect. Do you know where I can buy that in person? Because the shipping cost will murder me sincd I'm in Canada. I checked HD but they don't seem to have them.

Edit: They don't even ship to Canada.

Look for a Clevis pin. Should be readily available at any hardware store.

Replacement Part for Roof Rake


I tried the towing pin clips but they were just too difficult to set in place, not to mention I'd need these extensions to come off easily while outside in subzero temperatures.

My roof rake still had 2/3 functional snap buttons so I took the lower one that never needs to be removed and replaced it with a bolt that I applied locktite to:

I also filled down the end of the bolt to make sure the nut won't come off.

Just as an fyi, I thought I lost the same clip, but it turns out it was just pushed up in the pole. Take a flash light and look inside the pole.
