    Default PVC mounting on roof edge

    Does anyone know of a clip that will slip under the shingles at the roof edge that will hold 1/2" pvc pipe?

    Almost... I am using clips from holidaylighthhooks.com together with large binder clips to mount my emt to the gable (peak) end of the roof. Works great. The binder clip (already attached to the emt) fits perfectly into the hooks. Initial set up just requires getting the spacing right and then you're set for next year as well. I spaced mine about every 5 feet. We had high winds last winter and they never moved.

    Thanks Ed. Do you have a pic of the binder clip you use? Also check our Canny Systems for some pretty cool clips for your roof ridge. I used these last year and they held up well in the wind and snow. I just zip tied my pvc to the clips but this year they have come up with an adapter for that.

    If you have a 3D printer, or know where you can get something printed, http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...t=gutter+clips

    MindTrik is not printing them anymore but he does have the files on thingverse so you can print them yourself

    These work perfectly for emt and 1/2 inch pvc. For the roof edge, the weight of the pixels and emt is sufficient to keep it engaged with the roof edge clips.

    I used these:
    https://www.homedepot.com/p/Simpson-...STA9/202255804

    Cut them in half, and folded the a 1/4" twice at the end. This gave me a nice plate with the hole. The plate tucks under your shingles.

    I then got these:
    https://www.menards.com/main/tools-h...6132241&ipos=1

    Drilled holes through my PVC and attached the j-bolts. Then it was just a matter of slipping the hangers under the shingles and then hanging the pvc from the hangers. The j-bolts also work great on gutters.

    I use the Simpson Straps also after someone recommended them. I clamped one end to a piece of PVC and bent the strap around it, making a C shape. The PCB springs in/out of the C and the rest of the strap slides easily under the shingles. I put a lot of weight on them, 4 strands of lights plus garland and they never moved. Super easy to take down too.

    Secure one end to a piece of PVC with a clamp or vice grips. Bend it around the pipe until you get a C shape. After that, bend the strap backward so the C drops down as shown in the picture. Clamping to a piece of wood with a 90 degree edge helps with the second bend.
