If you're installing gutters with your steel roof, you will want some sort of snow stop up there. I was misguided when I built my house into thinking my "commercial grade" gutters could take the snow load just fine, "no need for snow stops". Yeah... Bullshit.

The first heavy wet snow we got that year ruined the gutters.

If I do end up putting stops on, I will use the ones that simply look like painted angle iron screwed onto the tops of the ribs and run them the full length of the eaves. They seem the most popular in the U.P., and I like the idea better than the little clear plastic feet screwed all over the roof. I suck at the internet, so I can't find the link right now.
