Customer Questions & Answers

How do I install the gutter guard clamps?

Asked by: Barbara
The girders fit onto the edge of the gutters. If it is a hemback gutter, screws are used to attach to it.

I am having trouble getting the three nipples of the girders to snap into the black plastic guard...

I am having trouble getting the three nipples of the girders to snap into the black plastic guards. The openings of the plastic guards are too small, and the guards are not flexible enough for them to snap into the openings. (1) I would appreciate a solution, as I find that Amerimax products are normally high quality products. (2) Also, is there an instructional video on installing this product?
Asked by: Honcho
I found the same problem. The diamond shaped nipples you are referring to are made deliberately slightly to big, so as once the guard is in place, the guard doesn't detach by wind, rain or tempest. My solution was to attach the gutter guards to the mesh whilst on the ground. Roll out the mesh to the desired length you need, work out how many guards you need and distance. Then attach guard to mesh. I attached the mesh to the guard by placing the mesh onto the first half of the diamond nipple, the mesh won't snap on, but I found if you then pulled gently on the mesh i would stretch over the other part of the diamond then it would ease back on itself ( it's elastic to an extent.) With the first one in place, I would then attach the second nipple in the same way. Finesse is way forward with this product. Mine are still in place, none come off, and the gutters free from the deluge of leaves I get here.

Asked by: Al
These are made specifically for a 5" K style gutter. If used on a 6" gutter, the curve might be less than desirable.

5 in. x 20 ft. Black Gutter Guard Girders (8-Pack) is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am disappointed in the gutter guard girders because the three tabs on them are too large to fit... I am disappointed in the gutter guard girders because the three tabs on them are too large to fit into the openings on the gutter guard screen. However, I am very pleased with the Amerimax gutter guard screen (mesh). I found an easy way to keep the screen on the gutters at the desired height, using 3" #10 stainless steel screws, #10 stainless steel nuts, and #10 stainless steel washers, which are attached to the support arms that hold the gutters to the siding. Attached are a set of three pictures showing how I attached the simple mounting system, using stainless steel screws, nuts, and washers that I purchased at Home Depot. I highly recommend the Amerimax gutter mesh, but not the girders.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the job Several rains and thousands of leaves - appears to be holding up just fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't like it I tried this system out but didn't like it for a couple or reasons: 1. The way my gutters were installed I would have had to screw through my gutter and flashing to install these. I didn't want to allow for the possibility of water to get past the flashing. Might have considered this if the screws came with some o-rings. 2. You really had to distort the mesh to get it to hang on the clips. I couldn't get the mesh to look nice on top of the girders. The instructions that came with this said they were "easy to install" but didn't go into any detail on the best way to do things. It seems like everyone that buys these has to come up with your own method for install.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What werde they thinking? Had read a review here saying these clips are hard to install. That was an understatement. Gave up trying after five minutes of effort with the first one. Might work depending on how close the gutter is mounted to the overhanging shingles. At my house I'd have to break shingles to clip the inner end into the gutter wall. Opted to install the gutter protection grid flat, pushing it under the shingles and anchoring them in the outside groove of the gutters. Secured them to gutter mount braces with tie straps. Now the grids are not going anywhere and they stay out of sight from the ground.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works okay These girders were relatively easy to install. However, the accompanying gutter guard is not very flexible so the overall process is not good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible - Does Not Fit 6" Gutters Despite Contrary Labeling These do NOT fit six inch gutters despite clear package labeling to the contrary. For some reason it is impossible to find ones to fix actual six inch gutters. But I used a lighter to soften plastic and expand and managed to force them to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a consistent product I bought these because they went with the amerimax gutter guards which were very well reviewed in consumer reports. These were not as easy to install as I was led to believe. It is difficult to clip the girder on to the back of the gutter. Additionally, and more importantly, not all of these girders have the same size hook on the opposite end. This hook is suppose to attach the girder to the front of the gutter, but half of the girders didn't have enough of a hook for it to attach. Ultimately I ended up returning the product; very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I purchased the gutter guard without any of the girders. Had them installed about 4 months, with two substantial storms/high winds. Three areas blew the guards off of the gutters. Purchased two 8-packs of the girders for the three trouble spots. Installed easily. Several high winds/storms later they have held up great. Gutter guards have all stayed up without problems.
