Roof Hook w/ Folding Ladder. Good Idea / Bad Idea?
I am dealing with a roof that has a ridge to eaves dimension from 22' - 28', which is way too long for me to use a section of my 32' extending ladder. The roof is a slate roof, so somewhat fragile.
I was wondering what peoples thoughts were on using a folding ladder like the Louisville L-2094-22. I believe the hinges on these lock in both directions with solidity, and though there is a round hinge "bump" that extends on one side of the ladder, that could just face the sky to ensure it doesn't create a pivot point on a flat surface.
Has anyone used such a folding ladder with a roof hook?
Any experience, comments, recommendations?
