    I love the product itself. It’s fantastic and works great. It wasn’t hard to put together. With that, the instructions and even instruction video could be better and updated. The video isn’t the style of product that is being delivered. The delivered is a much more updated product. Also the instructions with the package could have pictures of the product that is delivered.

    We been using the GOAT for years. A must for safe Christmas Light installation.

    My GOAT is the best tool in my box for steep roofs. I get on some pretty sketchy roofs every week and have even used it even on some of the lesser steep ones when it has severe granulation loss. It is easy to place and secure once there. I have less hook roll over than with other systems that utilize ropes. Last time I purchased one of the “other” steep assist tools, I had to buy each piece separately. One purchase from the GOAT store and I was off and climbing for less money and frustration.

    Ups messed up my address. Someone called after hours and worked to resolve the issue. Best customer service.

    I have one steep peak above my garage that I couldn’t hang icicle lights for Halloween and Christmas by myself. Had to wait for friends, neighbors to help maneuver an extension ladder. Now, with The Goat, I can decorate the peak by myself on my timeframe. Very easy to use and maneuver by yourself.

    Works as advertised. Definitely adds an additional layer to allow us to safely navigate a roof.

    I’m slower with it but safer. Needs a rubber pad added to the back of the “steps”/handles to keep it from sliding sideways.

    This tool enabled me to complete light hanging jobs in spots that would have otherwise not have been able to be done which would not have made me money, very satisfied with the durability and effectiveness of this product in relation to price in the long run!

    Trusted my life with this on a 45 degree roof multiple times and it worked great. It’s light weight and very easy to assemble. I could easily adjust the lengths and move it even on top of a roof. If you are doing anything on a steep roof the Goat is essential.

    I wouldn’t be able to do my job without my GOAT – I’m glad I have one. I would recommend buying the duffle bag too if you don’t want a bunch of loose poles clinking around. Was advised by a roofer to not leave the goat in the sun because it may affect the plastic handles. But overall it’s a great product. Would recommend.

    This year was totally different since I had “The Goat”! It made my life so much easier, and so much safer. I am so happy I made this purchase!

    David H. (verified owner)

    My roof is a 9:12 pitch. Just steep enough that I didn’t feel comfortable hanging lights on the edge without some assistance. The goat steep assist is the perfect tool to help with this. Sturdy, lightweight, and portable. Easy to handle when on the roof, and feels very secure using it as a hand hold along the edge of the roof. I would highly recommend.

    Amazing product. My team and my self would never attempt some of these roofs without the goat. Thank you

    Bought this to work on a home with a 8/12 pitch. Was easy to setup and worked as planned. I’m glad I made this purchase.

    Works great definitely needs one more rode

  24. CB

    Charise B. (verified owner)

    I like using it but there should be a extra handle right below the hook. There’s too much space at the top.

  25. JM

    JD M. (verified owner)

    I’m a 220lb adjuster. Use it daily and so far no problem. Fast to spin around on the ridge than a ridge pro. I do feel the hook where it goes in to the pole flex a lot. I’m constantly inspecting for damage, so far so good. I do wonder if the head could be beefed up for when you have to stand on the handles on a very steep roof, but I’m happy so far. Just makes me nervous hanging by that piece.
