Excellent product
An excellent product and highly recommended if you live in areas that receive a lot of snow during the winter. It makes the roof frame so much more stronger with the extra snow load bracing.

Great Accessory!
I own a lakefront second home in Maine and although the 8x5' shed I bought is extremely well built without this extra Snow Load Kit, I feel more secure knowing the roof will be able to withstand a tough Maine winter!

Q: My 8' X 10' shed has a model number 6419 that is not listed as being compatible with your shed roof reinforcement kit. We do not have heavy snow loads in Oklahoma, but we do have strong straight line winds with our thunderstorms and both center panels are broken at the top and need to be replaced on the south side. Neither panel has a skylight in them. Will this kit work on my shed? Can I buy 2 replacement panels for my shed also?
Asked by: Jim Pauling - 8/5/2017
A: For that you will need to call 1-800-225-3865.

Q: How many kits do I need for my Lifetime storage shed?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:48:40 AM
A: The smallest shed that can use this snow load kit is an 8x5 Lifetime shed, such as model 6406 Lifetime shed. This shed has 1 truss, therefore needing 1 kit to increase the strength. From there, Lifetime outdoor shed sizes increase by 2.5 feet. Each 2.5 foot increase in length adds another truss that will need to be reinforced. Thus, the 6411 Lifetime shed will need to snow load kits, and the 6405 Lifetime storage shed will need three kits.

Q: Can this truss reinforcement kit be used with Lifetime garden shed?
Asked by: Admin - 8/12/2015 8:48:38 AM
A: These snow load kits are also compatible with Lifetime garden sheds too, but are not useable on all trusses. The 60005, 60001, and 60020 have two trusses this kit can be used to reinforce. The 6446 model can use 4 trusses.
