    Before I was able to get my hands on a filter box grabber I would climb up with my tools and a rope. Then took the rope and go down. Rig up filters then climb back up. Mainly because my service manager *****ed me out every time I bought tools so I just charged more time to PMs until he let me buy the tools I needed.

    Real easy. Tie rope around box of filters before going up ladder. Pull box up to roof untie. Climb down and tie next box on. Repeat as necessary.

    Yup, that’s one way. But hard on the knees especially on those big industrial buildings with 30 some boxes of filters.
    The grabber makes things much easier. And you only have to go up the ladder once.

    I had one of those buildings in the northeast. What a PITA. I almost bought a grabber for that one. Then, they went bankrupt.
