Installing Roofing Shingles

I snap the first line as usual, after hooking the chalk line on the lowest nail. But to snap the next line, I just leave the hook in place, wind the line over the next nail, and pull the chalk box to the correct mark. Do the same for the remaining courses; it's much faster and easier than resetting the hook each time, and the hook never slips.
