Instillation process for safety plates

When using plates under shingles, use top 5-6" anti-stick portion of a shingle to keep shingle from sticking to plate.

When using plates to install shingles, seal nail holes after pulling plate. Move plates up as you go when done remove plates towards exit point one by one.
