Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) May 16, 2008
InventHelp®, America's largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Milburn, N.J., has designed a set of special pry bars that would be designed to assist in the removal and repair of shingles and shakes. This invention is patented and a prototype is available.
The "All Purpose Kit" would be designed to make a roofer's job faster, easier and safer. The invention could enable a user to remove shingles without damaging step flashers. The device would assist in the repair of shingles on a roof or in siding. The apparatus would feature simple operation and may be used by carpenters and demolition crews for multiple applications.
The All Purpose Kit would consist of a set that would include two different pry bars for various roofing applications. The "Roofer's Pry Bar" would enable users to get under a dormer to pull nails out from the step flashing attaching the shingle. The Roofer's Pry Bar would measure approximately 1-5/8 inches wide, 2 inches high and 14 inches long. One end would feature and inverted U-shaped configuration with a triangular notch in the central part of its leading edge. The opposite end of the bar would be beveled upward and include a set of three notches, including one triangular notch in the center of the leading edge and one on each side (set back about ½ inch or so from the leading edge.) A fourth notch, triangular in shape, would be provided toward the center of the bar 2-inches from the beveled edge. A "Cedar Shake Repair Bar" would also be included to repair wood shingles on a roof or in siding. Cedar Shake Repair Bar would measure roughly 1-5/8 inches wide, 1-1/2 inches high and 17inches long, with the central part and one end of the bar tapering downward into a beveled edge. This end would be slightly curved and would include two notches, one on each side, set back 3/8 inch from the end and would measure 3/8 inch in depth.
The opposite end of the bar would have a somewhat Z-shaped configuration with its end terminating in a rounded gripping area measuring roughly ¾ inch in diameter and 6 inches long. The gripping area of the tool would be spherical in shape, forming a small ball to prevent a worker's hand from slipping from its end. Both bars would be producible from hardened, forged steel.
