First off, I bet a few of you are wondering where the instructions are to assemble your brand new roof rake are. We too get that call from time to time something like - there was no little slip of paper explaining how to assemble it - and the snow is piling up!
The instructions on how to assemble a Garelick Snow Roof Rake are printed on the long flap of the box!
You may have opened your roof rake box from the short end - so open it like a cake box and the instructions are right inside. But you may have already recycled your snow roofrake box and now you are wondering where to begin. Well, you have come to the right spot!
Step One: do a complete inventory of your roof rake parts.You should have the following
- 1 Roof rake hardware pack containing, nuts, bolts and 2 patented shingle savers.
- 2 Roof rake braces (once in a blue moon they are inside a roof rake pole)
- 1 Angle adapter
- 3,4,5 or 6 Five foot poles depending on which snow roof rake model you purchased and how many extension poles you ordered
You will also need:
Wrenches and larger flath ead screw driver
Optional - LocTite Threadlocker
Do Not Hand Tighten Any Screws. Use proper tools. Check your hardware to make sure it is secure before roof raking
Harsh winter conditions, snow, and ice can cause the hardware to loosen over time We recommend using LocTite Thread Locker to keep everything in place - it is available on our site. LocTite Threadlocker expands where no air is present such as the threads of the nuts and bolts- securing all of your hardware.
Insert all the push pin clips into the tapered ends of the roof rake extension poles and get the pin to snap our the hole. I prefer to insert the v side inward. If you miss the hole - you can use a needle nose pliers to fish them back up.
Step Three Affix the one foot angle adapter to the center of the roof rake blade with the long bolt. ( long portion of the bend is close to the head or blade of the roof rake) This can be one of the more challenging steps as the holes intentionally don't line up. This engineered so the 2 parts thread together. TIP: LAY THE ROOF RAKE HEAD ON A HARD FLAT SURFACE. POSITION THE ANGLE ADAPTER IN PLACE AND PUT THE SCREW IN ONE HOLE BUT NOT OUT THE OTHER. TILT THE HEAD TOWARDS ITS ANGLE IN SO THE OTHER SIDE COME SLIGHTLY OFF THE GROUND AND USE A SCREW DRIVER TO SCREW IT OUT THE OTHER SIDE. Affix the locking bolt to the screw. And make tight with wrench.
Attached the 2 braces to the angle adapter with the last remaining screw and one of the nuts. You may hand tighten this for now - we will snug it up at the end. Then with the little screws and 2 remaining bolts attach the braces to the roof rake head. I prefer the bolts to face the inside of the blade and the screw ends on the outside.
Installing the Shingle Savers. The patented Shingle Savers attaches to the roof rake blade by a hairline opening. Use a flathead screw driver to pry the opening and release them on the slot on blade. TIP USE SUPERGLUE TO CLOSE THE HAIRLINE SLIT IN THE SHINGLE SAVERS. The shingle savers may not spin freely at this time but as you use the rake they should ease into operation.
