To be used in manufacturer designated high wind areas, but if you regularly have winds exceeding 60 mph, then this nailing pattern is highly recommended. Note the placement of the nails. One to either side of the "throat" or "cutout".

Please note that the manufacturer's nail placement requirements may differ slightly.

5 NAILS PER SHINGLE

The question has been asked about a 5-nail pattern for shingles. 5-nail patterns often result in the nail falling within the throat of a 3-tab shingle which can result in leaks so 5-nail patterns are not recommended.
