As our haunt here has grown, we have begun to fill out a lot of our spaces, and are considering moving up to the roof. However, we are concerned about damaging the roof in an attempt to attach props up there. Is anyone aware of any methods to safely attach large spider props to the roof. The spider below is partly what we wish to install. However, we plan to lighten the body load and make adjustments to the legs.
Any ideas?

Not really sure on any safe ways to attach items to the roof without really damaging the shingles...but I wish you luck and I love the neon green!!!!
I used Blacklight reactive paint, so she glows when lit up with them at night.

I've been toying with the idea of placing a giant spider inflatable on our roof and have the same concerns about shingle damage. I was thinking I could anchor it with black paracord and either find something heavy on the ground to tie to or drive a stake in. I think if I can keep it tight enough not to move I can't see it doing any damage. I found a guy online that had done something similar but his roof was fairly flat. Mine has a very steep grade.

On my garage roof, I've taken 2 - 24" x 24" 3/4" outdoor plywood squares and hinged them, one half to the front peak and the other half on the back peak.
Using a flagpole bracket (adjustable angle), I inserted a pole an attached the big latex crouching devil to the pole.
However, I did not leave out when Sandy was approaching NJ, though I did leave other items, as a test.

I do not have mine on my roof, but if I was going to I would use weight. Weight on the base frame and there are little metal loops on the ends of each leg that I would tie weights to to keep them in place.

My roof is very low slope, not sure how well it would do on a higher pitched roof.

I've had inflatables on my roof and utilized weighted sand bags and tethered to them. Amazon sells zippable bags you can fill with sand. They're used for holding photographer light stands down etc. I had a Jack Skellington Sleigh on the roof and worked well. they average 25 pounds each or higher.
