There's no need for trimming shingles to force a fit. Drill one pilot hole into the rafter, backfill it with appropriate sealant, slide the Quick Mount flashing beneath the course above, drive the bolt home, and it's done. This video documents the 60-second process.
The 12 x 12-inch Classic Composition Mount flashing is designed to fit within a standard 5 to 5.5" course and the exposed course should be no greater than 5.75". If the exposure is greater than this, use the Classic Shake Mount as an alternative. There's no shingle cutting and no shingle distortion caused by trying to force a fit. Just a permanent, watertight mount every time!
PV, Solar Water Heating, and More

The Classic Composition Mount is also made by Quick Mount PV Canada in Ontario, Canada and meets the OPA Ontario Feed-in Tariff program's requirement for domestic content.
