A roof ladder hook is designed to help you safely climb a ladder to reach a building's roof. It attaches to the peak of a steep roof and ensures that a ladder remains in place consistently. Ladder hooks are sometimes constructed from plastic, and as such, won't damage a roof or gutters. Meanwhile, various hooks consist of powder-coated steel for extra durability. Hooks usually include wing nuts that allow you to tighten a hook in place. Additionally, hooks may come equipped with wheels. Hooks are available in multiple sizes and styles. They are often sold with instructions to show you how to properly attach the hook to a ladder and roof.
