English translation:pins and clips???
Explanation:
I don't see what it is or how it fits in in this context, but a piton is a hook or an eye that one screws into a wall, for example, for attaching something to. It definitely fits with "fixation", but I don't see what the purpose is for this gutter (they call it chéneaux (note spelling), which is a box gutter, but I rather suspect this is ordinary half-round guttering!).

In roofing, a pince is the fold at the edge of a piece of metal to strengthen it. I don't see the connection with "tuiles". Unless it has another meaning here and the pince is some sort of clip to secure the bottom of the bottom row of tiles, where they overhang the guttering.
