T lock shingles

Does anyone know where I can buy white T lock shingles. I need about 4 squares to repair my barn roof.

If you go back and add where you live in your profile someone may know.
I was told by my roofing supplyer many years ago there no long made. I think Tamco was the last company that made them up until about 1995.
But he was a salesman, so it may not be true.

If you find 4 sq of decent condition T-Loc shingles I will be amazed. The last brand I knew of was IKO Amour Lock, but they're discontinued.

Call every distributor you can and see if they have something out back that was forgotten about.

Also check on Ebay, any local roofing company to see if they have them laying around covered in dust.
All the insurances companys knew they were going to be discontinued so they were opting out and installing arcutecual shingle for the whole roof if there was storm damage.
The last place I saw any was at ABC Supply. There a nation chain and there # is on there web site.

I couldn't find any in early '90's and that was in big city with lots of Discontinued materials warehouses. Looks like complete reroof on that side of roof or ugly patch
Or a multi color patch of your brand, a hex symbol, or other design.
Measure twice, cut once.
Look at the nail, not the hammer. Watch the fence, not the blade.
If you hook your thumb over your belt you won't hit it with the hammer or leave it layin on the saw table.
