Choosing The Right Clip Light clips that fasten without nails or staples are the  ideal choice when hanging lights from your roof.  Space them to avoid your lights from dropping down in between the clips. At the roof line, place light clips that slide onto your shingles or clay tile. S shaped clips make it easy to string lights across your gutter. If you like a uniformed look choose clips that allow you to fit your light into the clip, thus holding it into a steady position.
