This year I was going to do some striping on my house and will need to have a hook (or something to run a wire to) where the overhang of my roof meets the brick front on my house (see the pic). I was wondering what you guys do? I am not real comfortable with nailing/drilling into the brick where the channel meets it, but I can't seem to find a good hook to use that won't ruin anything. I was thinking that there might be something I can slide up between the brick and the j channel that will then sort of hold into place, but I haven't seen something like that for sale. Do you guys have any ideas?

I use these binder clips to hold wiring up against the soffit. They hold great and you can also run zip ties through the wire levers to hold wreaths or other items

I would suggest 3M command hooks.

For something a little more permanent, you can use a Cable Ties Mount like the ones found here.

Brilliant both of you! I get so absorbed it the issue that i can't get past it sometimes.

Picked up some binder clips today (little mini ones for $0.88 for 12) and they seem like they will work perfect for the j-channel. Then for around the windows the 3M hooks will be great on the vinyl where the binder clips won't work.

Thanks guys!
