Miller Single D Permanent Roof Anchor
The new Miller Single D Permanent Roof Anchor provides one (1) D-ring anchorage point when securely installed on a wood roof sub-surface and finished with the selected roofing materials only the D-ring is exposed for a quick, safe anchorage point.

Similarly, the new Miller Double D Permanent Roof Anchor provides two (2) D-ring anchorage points when installed over a wood ridge peak and finished with the selected roofing materials only the D-rings are exposed for quick, safe anchorage points. (For use by a single user, maximum 310 lbs.)
