Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Graying Gutter Guards
These plastic gutter guards are fairly easy to install and snap on tightly to the edge of the gutter. I bought the guards without the sand screen to help assure water would readily go into the gutters.
Some suggestions I have for the manufacturer:
1: make them in different widths, the 7" width of these makes it difficult to slide under the roofing where the nails are near the edge even on 5" gutters. Installing requires cutting around the nails. I think this size would not have worked for me if the gutters were 4" instead of 5".
2: make corner pieces (inside and outside corners) that will help keep debris from entering at the corners.
1: slide each piece along the edge line under the roofing, beginning at the previously installed piece, pulling it makes it easier and much faster.
2: overlap the corners at least 1" (1/2" from each direction) when possible, then stitch the corners with soft galvanized wire.
We'll have to wait a few weeks to see how well they work. I usually have to clean these gutters 3 or 4 time per year, I am hoping to never do it again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Halvy Easy install, mediocre performance.
These were the most inexpensive gutter covers that I found. They looked to be a good design and easy to install. The installation was straight forward. You notch about an inch or two for the overlap and they snap on to the edge of the gutter. I had to notch around the gutter nails on a stretch of older gutter. The newer gutter was held in place by a different hanger and didn’t get in the way of the cover. My gutters measure five inches wide, so the gutter cap covered the gutter and went up under the roofing a few inches. Installation was quick. During a good hard rain I would say that 30 percent of the water ran over the edge of the gutters and I was still able catch the other 70 percent into a couple of large rain water catch totes. With that said my roofing does extend about halfway over my gutters. I could get better performance if I would cut back the roofing to expose more of the surface area of the gutter cover. This will be something I address the next time I roof the house. These gutter covers will keep debris (pine needles, moss, leaves) from collecting in the gutter; unfortunately, it will also keep a fair amount of the water out also.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seaweed No more leaves in gutters hopefully
Relatively easy install using pliers with grip covers to protect the gutter paint and plactic due to tight fit at the gutter lip. Satisfied with the product so far. We'll see how they hold up to the winter snow accumulations. The labels are hard to remove so I placed the strips out in the sun and the labels came off easily. If it's not sunny use a hair drier.

Yes- I installed as the directions said. Within a month, they had all warped from the sun and had popped off the edge of the gutter, so the gutters are full of leaves and needles like before ... these are useless, and I'm out $75 :(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary Just had installed.
I just had these gutter guards installed. They installed easily and snapped securely to the edge of the gutter. The installer has had them on his house for four years and said they work fine. Had lots of rain and it worked well. Some reviews said it blocked rain but i didnt find that to be an issue. So far they are a 5

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handywoman Value & Installation
I'm a do-it-yourself person. Purchased online; delivery was ontime, undamaged, as promised.
Pros: Installed these with ease. Easy to cut to size. Fit snugly on the lip of the gutter which is peace of mind that they will stay in place. Once attached, the screens do not slide so install them close together. Great value for the money spent.
Con: If I have to name one, peeling off the product information sticker on each screen. You can probably leave them on and let the rain take care of it but I didn't want to.
