Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tantak Good for leaves, but not dirt and berries.
This product would work great if all you were cleaning out of your gutters was leaves. But after my gutter cleaning adventure, I realized that I was dealing with mostly dirt and berries. So, I do not recommend it if your have more than leaves in your gutter! But, not to be negative Nancy, I found an alternative use for this product. Here in S. FLA we have iguanas that come into my yard and destroy my plants. Some of the fencing has spaces where the posts are so they can slip thru, so to keep them from getting in I used this mesh to fill the spaces. It works better as it is more durable than screening and I was able to use staple gun!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sinyet protects plants from squirrels, too!
I use this in planters and the garden to keep squirrels from digging up new plants. Just cut to fit and use garden prongs or chopsticks to hold in place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Richard Does what it is supposed to do......guards your gutters from leaves and the like.
Bought this product to stop my gutters from getting blocked from falling leaves from a prolific oak tree. My gutters got blocked with fallen leaves, and the gutters didn't function as they should. So I put these on and my gutters have been kept clear. There is still a bit of a build up of leaves on top of the guard, but water is draining into the gutters and down the down pipe, so I think it is doing its job.
I used this product in conjunction with the girders , and found that it works really well. The down side were the screws supplied, a bit on the short side for my situation, but easily remedied by buying longer screws. So not a hassle. I guess they can only supply for Mr Average Situation.
I followed the instructions but found that fitting the girders to the guard whilst on top of a ladder was making life awkward, so I would recommend fitting your girders to the guard whilst on terra firma, you can roll out the guard flat then fit the girders, that way you can space the girders apart to where you want them. It was then a simple matter of taking the length, up the ladder and attaching the girders to my gutter as I traversed along. I would also purchase an additional set of girders, nothing worse that running out of the things. If you don't use a whole pack you could always return them to HD for a partial refund.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bud Easy job for me.
All is good. I have installed 4 rolls around the guttering . Was an easy job , but not able to use the Gutter Girders because of how the rock guard covers the edge of the gutters.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RayAustinTexas Easy to install and no worry on its width
I just lifted shingles up and insert this prastic guard in and let another edge inside of gutter channel. No need to worry on its width and of course I cut the length to fit with my gutter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Slim Least Expensive Option That Works
I was able to just pop lengths of this mesh into my 5" K-style gutters without using the Gutter Guard Girders which are sold separately and won't fit in all of my gutters anyway because of roof overhang. When I easily popped it in it formed a natural arch that will shed leaves and debris and stand up to a few pounds of snow load becuase this mesh is pretty stiff unlike the competing brand. When it comes to roof ice glaciers, well, I'll see what happens (lucky, tornadoes are rare here) but if they don't hold in place I just gotta pop 'em back in. Really they just gotta keep leaves & maple seeds out 3 weeks in autumn, 2 weeks in spring. I recommend this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by allweatherman It's good for what it Is: Plastic
...but I didn't need or want to pay for the heavier gauge metal type. Tucks easily under shingles and can be cut to length. The roll was 25' in length last time I bought it! Guess it's shorter to maintain value pricing.
