"roof bracket" is pretty general to me and I can't quite picture what your saying. Are you talking about a walk board bracket? If so I like to use heavy screws for them or nail them down good where there is no chance of it coming loose. Not hard to pry up later

Its best to secure "roof jacks" to the rafters. You're life may depend on those nails! Two or three 3" hot dipped galv roofing nails work well to secure the roof jack, because they have large heads. If you are shingling, you nail them high enough so that they are above the tar strip of the shingle. Nail them loosely so that you can get them out later, then pound the nails in.
