    I've not heard of a clip being required.

    The ends should fall on a stud and be nailed to the stud.
    AFAIK no need for a clip.

    That's some of the ugliest siding I've seen. What's the look they were going for, poorly planed wood?

    Do not think of knocking out another person's brains because he differs in opinion from you. It would be as rational to knock yourself on the head because you differ from yourself ten years ago.

    If that's Hardie (I recall a "Colonial Roughsawn" product they had that looked like that) then no clip is required, joints should fall on studs (nails 3/8" from edge), and butt joints should be flashed or caulked (back in '97; today they only recommend flashing of butt joints).
