I am going to put this right up there with my snowblower with a must have winter tool. I find the roof rake to be very well made and the aluminum IS NOT flimsy. The rollers are a must have to prevent shingle damage. Wouldn't own one without them. I haven't seen any of the issues the others were writing about. The pole is obviously going to be a little flexible when you are reaching out 16' and it is in three pieces still, the poles are of a heavy gauge aluminum. It is extremely effective. I got the rake caught behind a nice big chunk of ice and snow and yanked the tar out of it until the snow came crashing down. The rake was undamaged. It is light weight and very manuverable. The handle sections go together easily and stay together. The only thing I would recommend is to check the nuts and bolts after each use for they may back off some with all the thrashing around. Well worth the money spent! BTW, Made in the USA. You don't see that much anymore. Almost brought tears to my eyes when I saw that. Go get one now.

For the cost ($40+) I would have expected a better built product. Especially considering it was "made in america". The nuts and bolts came loose and disappeared in the snow. Luckily I had extras in my garage to put it back together.

In the end, the concept is great and it does have very good reach and is light weight. Very good soluton for stopping or preventing water leaks from ice dams.

Went together very easily. The only tough part was getting the rollers on. Lock nuts should keep them from coming loose. Extensions attach easily.

      Comments about Garelick® 16ft Aluminum Roof Rake (89416):

      I used this today and it does the job as quickly and efficiently as can be expected with such a long extension and a 24x7 blade at the end, as well as the need to be lightweight. I have about 3-4' of snow on my roof. You do need to use some care and patience in taking layers off at a time, so not to overload the pull back.

        A quality tool for removing snow from my roof here in New England. Light weigh yet extremely sturdy. Take the time during the assembly process to tighten the hardware a little at a time. This way everything aligns properly giving it the strength the engineer designed into it.

            Comments about Garelick® 16ft Aluminum Roof Rake (89416):

            I think they did a good job of build quality vs. holding down weight on this. Any weight at the end of a 20' pole is unwieldy. It's much more durable than the other roof rakes I've used. I've pulled pretty are on this against packed snow/ice and it hasn't bent. I check the bolts before I use it because I've had them fall off on other rakes, if they do, I'll replace them with either aircraft nuts or lock washers, but I haven't had any issues. I'm amazed at how much force the little clips that hold the pole sections together will take (now that I said that I'm sure I'll break one). Bought one extension with it and can reach 5-6' up on 2nd story roof without being on a ladder.

                Bought one eight years ago. Used very often in northern Maine winters. Used it very roughly and have repaired it a couple of times and it needs a new shovel head. Much superior to any other rake I have used through the years.

                    With this winter's terrible weather and constant snow fall, the Roof Rake was a terrific tool to remove snow from my home's roof to prevent 'ice damming'.
                    This product was extremely easy to assemble.

                    This is a critical item to have around the home, especially if you get ice dams, overloaded/damaged gutters or if you want to get your solar panels back online.

                    It's a bit flimsy but there has to be a balance between light weight and strength. This is an OK blend.

                    It's costly but not as expensive as a damaged home, so just buy it if you need it. It works.

                    With the 5' extension installed, this roof rake should be all I need to keep excessive snowfall off our roof, thus reducing any possible damage to the gutters. Has two rollers in rake head that should prevent any gouging of the shingles. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but expect it to be a good product and last longer since it's made of lightweight aluminum. It came with updated fastners, so nuts/bolts will stay tight and in place. Probably due to prior complaints by users. Only giving it 3 stars because I haven't actually used it, yet.

                        The roof rake saved the day here with a terrible CT winter of much smow. It is lightweight enough to let us work for quite a while but strong enough to do the job. Like anything you must take care when using it. Ours did end up with a loose screw bur we replaced it and went on with the job.

                        Very strong, able to pull heavy snow and semi-ice down. Handle snaps together, letting you twist if need be - screw-together handles will come unscrewed if you try that. Rollers keep the edge from cutting into your shingles - good! Metal blade much stronger than plastic ones on other products. DO keep bolts tightened or use thread-locker - I lost one bolt in the snow when it loosened - annoying but easy to fix. Do yourself a favor and put some XCSki wax on the blade to prevent snow sticking - it's heavy at the end of a 15 foot pole! May want to file off burr on the edges to prevent cuts. I am buying a second in order to extend reach further.

                            I have never, ever, seen such poor manufacturing than is seen in this product. The rake comes with 3 five foot extensions. One end of each extension has a smaller diameter that is supposed to fit into the larger diameter end of another. The smaller diameter end has been ground down from the original diameter, apparently by some hack, bouncing the pole off a grinder of some sort. It is ragged, terribly uneven, and won't fit into the larger end of it's male mate without significant sanding by the purchaser. The poles are not ribbed for structural strength and as a result the unit is quite wimpy when extended to 16 feet, but it does work. However, don't try to remove any extension piece for storage unless you have first adequately smoothed and reduced the small end diameter. Maybe they will wise up and correct this problem. (Incidentally, the product "Endust" is a good aluminum lubricant.)

                              This product is quite strong. The edge has two rollers to prevent edge of rake from digging into roof. Poles are strong and don't bend. 18 inches of packed snow was removed from edge of roof

                              For the cost ($40+) I would have expected a better built product. Especially considering it was "made in america". The nuts and bolts came loose and disappeared in the snow. Luckily I had extras in my garage to put it back together.

                              In the end, the concept is great and it does have very good reach and is light weight. Very good soluton for stopping or preventing water leaks from ice dams.
