The Horizontal Under-Eave Guardrail System (HUGS) is intended to be an easy-on, easy-off rooftop railing for use with trusses or open-tailed rafters. A metal “Quick Bracket” slips over the tail of the truss, and the orange guardrail is fastened to the bracket. In many cases, both parts can be installed before the trusses leave the ground. Each guardrail costs $138. Nail-on brackets, which remain in place after the work is done, are $5.50 apiece. Reusable screw-in brackets cost $14.75. Hugs One, 888/448-4723, hugsafety.com.
