You really should make sure that the lag bolts go into roof rafters or 2x6 bracing that you have added in the attic and attached to rafters. The plywood on the roof really isn't suitable to accept and hold lag bolts.
I coat the bottom of the tripod feet with roofing tar before setting it into position. The tar then squeezes out around the bolt hole and edge of the foot when you tighten it down. Then smooth over the top with a little more tar after it is in place.
I agree. I ordered a Ronard 2009 tripod from Solid Signal, and it came in today. It comes with tar pads for the feet, and it is designed so that all the feet line up with rafters, provided those rafters are on standard 16" centers. I'll use a stud finder to make sure I have the feet lined up with the rafters.
