We call them snow brakes, and we have them on the house. They are actually angle bars that go all across the bottom of the roof on all sides. The roof pitch of the shop is so slight that the snow normaly creeps to the edge, and breaks off and falls at the side of building, as shown in reply #18.

Just a quick update. I ordered a new refrigerator access door from the Airstream dealer. It arrived and I installed it a few weeks ago. This is a new experience drilling out rivets and putting in new ones. One has to be careful that the parts are snugly fitting together when using the rivet tool, as they don’t pull parts together, they just fasten parts gap and all. The Stream got moved a week after the snow slipped, and this is new snow from during the last week and today the weather guy says only 1-4 inches tops from today’s storm. Having the trailer outside of the shop is actually easier to work with than if it was inside, because the trailer door would be inconvenient to get to, and the trailer would block wood storage in the shop. The dimple on the panel above the refrigerator came and went with the weather (warm and cold), and now seems to have relaxed and not show up at all. I have been making cabinet changes, but I’ll do a new thread for that.
