The HitchClip, which is made of 6061-T6 aluminum and is extremely light, measuring 2 inches wide by 11-1/2 inches long. Its lightweight design makes it easily transportable.

The HitchClip sets itself apart from the rest of the market with five irrefutable characteristics:
The HitchClip promotes 100-percent hookup. No longer do tradesmen need to access a ridge to install a fall arrest system; it can be installed from a ladder.
At nearly 1/3 the cost of most permanent fall-arrest components, The HitchClip System makes jobsite safety easy on the pocket.
It can be utilized as a whole-house fall arrest system as well as the base attachment unit for SAFE's full line of production staging accessories.
The HitchClip helps complete the job quickly with virtually no timely staging breakdown. It's fully adjustable with quick-connect staging devices that help with tool and material storage. It also provides a stable and safe platform to work on.
Due to its lightweight and small packaging, tradesmen can easily install their own personal fall-arrest system regardless of the work zone and layout of the roof.
At nearly a 1/3 of the cost of most fall arrest components The HitchClip will be the ideal solution for all your fall arrest/fall restraint needs and meets all OSHA standards. The HitchClip® is a low profile anchoring unit that is designed to give the tradesman multiple anchoring options during placement. Due to its compact size (2”x11”) and lightweight (4.4ounces) the tradesman can easily transport several clips in his work belt for convenient hook-up anywhere on the roof as long as there is a sufficient framing member to attach to. No longer does a worker have to access the ridge to install his anchoring device, this can be done directly from the ladder for initial set-up and promoting 100% hook-up. This will help eliminate those transition injuries where the vast majority of falls occur. The HitchClips® progressive design also allows the tradesman to incorporate the HitchClip® Systems full line of quick connect and quick release staging accessories to help get the job done safer, quicker and on budget.
The HitchClip is installed using (6) 2-1/2” Grip-Rite screws (or equivalent) or (6) 16d galvanized framing nails. This can be done during the inspection of the roof for estimating, initial set-up for staging and tear-off, and while work is being performed. This system allows workers to install their own personal fall arrest at their convenience and easily change between devices as needed for their particular task regardless of what work zone they are in. This helps to eliminate crossing lines, hazardous clutter, and will prevent workers from anchoring to the same unit.
