Cable wire service hook pulling out of structure/vinyl siding

How can I repair this vinyl siding pulled out of structure myself?
It is the cable tv cables pulling out my siding.

You would need to take the siding down on that side, starting with the top row and work downward row by row. The lag hooks should be into the sheathing or framing, not just the vinyl siding.

I would get longer service hooks and move them to the corner of the house. You can get longer lag thread screw eyes from the home improvement stores. 5/16" x 6" would work good. You'd need to drill thru the vinyl corner into the sheathing and corner framing.

You could also call your provider and tell them the service hook(s) pulled out.
They will remount them no charge.
Once they were remounted you could fix the siding.
