    Okay, has anyone tried the connectors that go on the end of extension poles??

    I bought a pack today and a small extension pole to experiment. The clips go on gutters or slip under shingles. I tried mine on my shingles.

    They worked. Has anyone tried this for hanging lights for business? I don't want to climb up 30+ extension ladders if I don't have too. Or walk around steep pitched roofs.

    alot of guys use those cherry pickers (i think thats what theyre called), but only the real big business or tree business have them. Personally I just get up on the roof. I've never used the poles, I think it'd be more hassle than its worth.

    When ever we have to go above 25ft we just rent a battery operated lift. Works pretty slick and you just tow behind the old truck.

    I trained my guys on how to use repelling & climbing gear. They tie off to eachother on opposing sides of the house & start clipping. It takes a little time to learn, but once they figure it out they can move. Did 3 houses this week all over 6K square feet.
