Top row of siding falling off

The top row of siding is falling off on my garage. I try to snap it back but it will come off again. Any ideas on the proper way to fix this?

You can see on the attached pic it was nailed but came lose. Whats the best way to fix this?

Thank you!

I cannot see the upper edge of the loose piece.

Was it crimped?

Also that nail up top could not of gone through itas the nail is there and the siding is down.

As Manden said, tabs weren't punched on the top edge to keep it in the finish trim. Or maybe they ripped it too narrow to punch it. The roofing nail through the finish trim is a nice touch.

Go to a store that sells vinyl siding and tell them your issue. I think its called undersill trim and gets nailed to the wall with trim against soffit . The best I have seen requires you to press barbs into the top of the vinyl siding (requires purchase of the tool) such that barb catches on lip of the undersill trim when pushed up into place.

#1, Get rid of that roofing nail in the face of that trim.
#2, If that even is under sill that last piece of siding should have been punched with a snap lock punch with the hole facing out so the tab faced toward the outside.
Once that's done there's no way it would ever fall out again unless you used a zipper tool.

Thanks for the tips.

I think this is the process you are describing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJzl7MbY5OU

It looks like those punches were never made on mine.

I'm new to this so appreciate all the help!

Do this on a warm day.
If it is to cold instead of creating tabs it will just punch them out.
