What is the best way to hang Christmas lights on a roof with no gutters. Last yr a had to go on my roof many times to fix my lights. I use the plastic clip on as shown in attached picture. Is there another way to hang them. Thank You,

In the past I used shingle clips. Plastic clips that you shoved under the roof shingles. They worked pretty well.
This year I am used duplex nails. I am going to put these "double headed" nails on the roof, and then seal with liquid roof tar. I plan on running the lights up, and then attaching them with zip ties to the nails.
Just my thoughts.

Hey Kent, I was the winner in the family and kids scholarship fund on LOR. BOBO started it. I won a 16 channel controller. I was wondering is it hard to make a mega tree and sequence it? I am trying to think how i could add 16 more channels to my show. I already have all of my sequencing done. So just trying to figure the easiest way to do this. Thanks
