0.1200 gauge, by the 25 pound box - (about 81 hooks/lb or about 2,000/box). Blunt points won't poke you like the sharp ones will. Black anodized hooks are difficult if not impossible to spot on a roof.
 
 
 
 
Stainless steel slate hooks are stronger than copper slate hooks and are recommended whenever the roof decking is hard, as on old oak roof boards, or even old yellow pine, both of which tend to bend copper slate hooks  . Mill finish hooks remain shiny forever, whereas black anodized and  copper slate hooks and are relatively invisible.
 
Slate hooks are used to install replacement slates during repairs, and for replacing slates left out during the installation of a new slate roof where the scaffolding (roof jacks) are temporarily nailed onto the roof. Some slaters use nothing but slate hooks for repair work.
 
They may be easier to use than the nail and bib technique for the inexperienced person, and are certainly easier than the nail and bib when working with new or especially hard slates. It's always a good idea to have some of these hooks on hand. Can be used on most asbestos roofs too.

Copper slate hooks become more invisible on a slate roof than stainless steel ones do (unless they're black anodized). Stainless hooks are stronger and will nail into harder roof decking without bending. So if you're nailing into a softwood deck, either stainless or copper slate hooks  are recommended. If the deck is hard, use stainless steel.
