    :light: Lighting Expert, Please Help!

    How do I hang icicle lights along the roof line on a gable? I'm only hanging them from the porch roof. I have the plastic clips which I've never used before. I looked for a video online (Home Depot is good) but it didn't explain the gable where there's no gutter.




    THANKS!

    Should I forget the plastic hooks and use safety hooks?

    Thank you. It won't hurt or loosen the shingles? Duh! I guess not, because you are in the know and don't give bad advice!

    Thanks again.
