I've been in a Sherriff-Goslin manager in the past, and I'm currently a general contractor. I've worked with both T-Locks and Art Locs, and yes they both can be properly flashed with metal. T-locks are full double coverage so you just have to use about 16" pieces of metal to step flash anything or you can just use three 7" pieces of normal step flashing. The manufactures stop making T-Locks because the expense of the manufacturing cost of them, and the down time of switching the machinery over. T-Locks really have to be an organic material for them to perform properly because figerglass material is not thick enough for the lock to hold properly due to the wide lock on the shingle. If Sherriff-Goslin charges $300 per square that's telling you they don't want anyone else installing their shingles. They just want to make sure there properly installed, unless you've worked for them it would be hard to know the proper way to install them. Doug S.
