Attaching Pump Jack Braces


I have never used a pump jack before but when attaching to a roof, do you lift up a tab of the shingle, attach brace with screws and once finished, remove the screws and just let the shingle tab drop back into position or do you use some sort of adhesive?

its always good to put some asphault/rubber based roof patch AND drive an oversized flathead nail through the hole. then shingle on top....that should be leak free.

i like having a mechanical fastener in the hole (ie the nail) to take up space rather than just a hole, or goo.

here is what we do.
We cut a small 3x3 patch of ice and water and peel the backing from it and then slid it under the shingle with the hole lay the tab down and then fill the hole with black jack and lay the next shingle tab down into it. you could also slide a piece of step flashing under the shingle tab.
