Answer: 
Hi Judy. Thanks for your question. The wire leaf strainer would fit inside your downspout in the gutter or drop outlet. This will prevent leaves and other larger objects from getting stuck in your downspout.

Answer: 
Hi Bob. We believe you would be better using the aluminum leaf strainer for your rectangular downspout as the galvanized steel is more rigid.

Where does it fit into a 4-inch drain pipe or the gutter above? Does it have fine wire screen as well as the mesh that shows in the picture? It's hard to see.

3 in. Galvanized Steel Wire Leaf Strainer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart design This is a clever design. The mesh is pliable and easily reconfigured. Although it is nominally 3", it is easy to curl it up to fit a 2" outlet because there is no fixed seam, just an overlap. It is easy too, to form it to shape for rectangular outlets using long nosed pliers. The "wire" description is inaccurate. It is actually expanded metal, although best of all it is made in the USA! Can't give it 5 stars because it has not rained yet. I'm sure it will clog, but I have hopes that this will not be severe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reduces ladder climbs in the rain... We are experiencing our first "real" rain in several years, ... Reduces ladder climbs in the rain... We are experiencing our first "real" rain in several years, and since I had new rain gutters and downspouts installed. In the 30 years we have lived in this house, cleaning the rain gutters once every couple of years has kept the rainwater flowing just fine. However, the replacement gutters have a smaller diameter drain hole in the bottom of the gutter where water flows into the downspout. So, it now takes very little debris to clog the top end of the downspout, causing the gutters to fill and overflow. I found my self cleaning the gutters much more frequently - three times since the rain has started falling this season. It took some hit and miss searching the web site to find these, and even then I was not sure exactly what they were until I got my hands on them in the store. These are listed as a "3 in. Galvanized Steel Wire Leaf Strainer." It was not clear to me what the 3" measurement applied to, but once I got my hands on them I realized it means they fit into a 3" diameter round hole. They are actually a piece of small gauge expanded diamond shaped galvanized steel screen, about 8" high, curled at the top to make the top bow in, and then rolled to a diameter of 3". My rain holes are about half that diameter, but it was not difficult to re-roll the screen into a smaller diameter and it seems to fit well. In hindsight, I probably could have cut each screen vertically in half and gotten two downspout holes screened with a single 3" screen. But for the price, experimenting with cutting them and trying to see if there was enough for two drains, was not worth the added effort.
