Large Slate Hooks
Slate hooks are used during slate roof repair or installation of slates on a new roof where scaffolding or roof jacks were temporarily nailed to the roof. Some slaters use nothing but slate hooks for repair work, as they are easier than nail and bib when working with new or especially dense slate. All available hooks have blunt points for safety.
*Copper is a softer metal, and should be used on softer boards.
*Stainless steel is stronger than copper, and recommended for hard lumbers and roof decking that will bend copper.
