We Claim:

1. A roof anchor, comprising:
a pliable member including an interconnecting portion interconnecting a first portion and a second portion;
the first portion including a first securing portion with a first plurality of apertures and a first connecting portion with a first aperture, a first notch and a second notch are proximate a first juncture of the first securing portion and the first connecting portion, the first notch and the second notch extending inward from opposing sides of the first portion toward proximate a middle of the first portion, a second aperture being between the first notch and the second notch; and
the second portion including a second securing portion with a second plurality of apertures and a second connecting portion with a third aperture, a third notch and a fourth notch are proximate a second juncture of the second securing portion and the second connecting portion, the third notch and the fourth notch extending inward from opposing sides of the second portion toward proximate a middle of the second portion, a fourth aperture being between the third notch and the fourth notch.
2. The roof anchor of claim 1, wherein the pliable member is an integral piece of pliable material.
3. The roof anchor of claim 1, wherein the first portion and the second portion are mirror images.
4. The roof anchor of claim 1 , wherein the first plurality of apertures are
longitudinally spaced along the first securing portion and the second plurality of apertures are longitudinally spaced along the second securing portion.
5. The roof anchor of claim 1, wherein the first and second notches are staggered along the first portion and the third and fourth notches are staggered along the second portion.
6. The roof anchor of claim 1 , wherein the interconnecting portion is bent to align the first aperture and the second aperture and the first and second portions are bent proximate the first and third notches to form an angle between the first and second securing portions corresponding with a mounting surface.
7. The roof anchor of claim 1, wherein the interconnecting portion includes a score line.
8. A method of securing a roof anchor to a mounting surface, the roof anchor including a pliable member including an interconnecting portion interconnecting a first portion and a second portion, the first portion including a first securing portion with a first plurality of apertures and a first connecting portion with a first aperture, a first notch and a second notch are proximate a first juncture of the first securing portion and the first connecting portion, the first notch and the second notch extending inward from opposing sides of the first portion toward proximate a middle of the first portion, a second aperture being between the first notch and the second notch, the second portion including a second securing portion with a second plurality of apertures and a second connecting portion with a third aperture, a third notch and a fourth notch are proximate a second juncture of the second securing portion and the second connecting portion, the third notch and the fourth notch extending inward from opposing sides of the second portion toward proximate a middle of the second portion, a fourth aperture being between the third notch and the fourth notch, comprising:
inserting a fastener through each of the first and second plurality of apertures and the second and fourth apertures; and
securing the fasteners to the mounting surface.
9. The method of claim 8, further comprising connecting a connector of a safety device to the anchor aperture.
10. The method of claim 9, wherein the safety device is selected from the group consisting of a self-retracting lifeline, a lanyard, and a cable.
11. The method of claim 8, further comprising bending the interconnecting portion to align the first and third apertures to form an anchor aperture.
12. The method of claim 8, further comprising bending the first portion proximate the first notch and the first connecting portion and bending the second portion proximate the third notch and the second connecting portion to form an angle between the first securing portion and the second securing portion corresponding with the mounting surface.
13. The method of claim 8, wherein should a fall occur, a first load exerted in a first direction deforms the roof anchor proximate the first and third notches and a second load exerted in a second direction deforms the roof anchor proximate the second and fourth notches, the notches allowing the connecting portions to deform thereby allowing the connector to be proximate the mounting surface and reducing the likelihood of pulling the fasteners out of the mounting surface.
14. The method of claim 13, wherein the fasteners extending through the second and fourth apertures could be at least partially pulled out of the mounting structure.
15. The method of claim 8, wherein the roof anchor can withstand a load of up to 1800 pounds in any direction.
16. The method of claim 8, wherein the fasteners are subjected to shearing loads should a fall occur.
17. The method of claim 8, wherein the fasteners are selected from a group consisting of galvanized nails, vinyl-coated nails, cement-coated nails, type 16d nails, and screws.
