Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bellomustang GUTTER SHINGLE GUTTER GUARD
Well made product delivered in a timely fashion.
First,...Guards attached to 20+ yr old gutters that have lips slightly bent over the years. As such, I had to install fasteners
to keep the Guards aligned for a smooth finish. Self tapping 3/4" sheet metal screws made this very easy. To ensure closed ends of the gutter run to prevent critters from entering gutter, I had to cut a 3" tab on each end. Instructions included in shipment did not address this. Fortunately, previous experience with Amerimax products gave me an idea as to how to cut the tab.
Notched ends provided a near seemless run of guards.
Do wear gloves to prevent cuts while working these guards. Rubber palms help position Guards during installation.
Keep in mind that with any Gutter Guard, periodic maintenance of the gutter requires flushing to remove grit that has come off of the shingles. Leaves and other debris should not be a problem.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jim Lots of rain runs over the edge
The holes are so small that the surface tension of the drops stops them from flowing through. In a light rain, almost all of the rain ran right over the surface of the guard, over the edge of the gutter and dripped right onto the ground. I pulled off the one closest to the downspout and there was very little water actually getting into the gutter. I'll try to return these.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mcs1 Difficult to install, do not work well
Hard to install on existing gutters. Requires cutting and bending. Does not collect all the water. Water runs over the ledge and onto the ground. Expensive as well. I bought 4 to test, installed 2, which don't work very well, others sitting in garage. - Oh well, I tried it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fran Good product but installation can be difficult.
This gutter guard performs well in a light or moderate rain, and fair in a heavy rain. Installation could be relatively simple under ideal conditions, but that was not my experience. Since gutters are not always perfectly straight, the guards will pop out of their groove, and therefore need to be secured with screws - not an easy task 20 feet up on a ladder. Corners require cutting, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusyB Great Product
Product is a bit pricey but is well made and easy to install. I didn't need to cut it so I can't comment on how difficult cutting the steel would be. Has handled very heavy rain with no problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by canzim Works well; installs moderately easily
I installed this gutter guard on a single story ranch style house situated under 10 very tall leafy trees (maples and tulip poplars). Prior to installation of this product I was up on a ladder at least four times a year clearing the gutters of leaves, maple keys and what have you. Now that it has been up almost three years, I have checked to see if it has moved (it hasn't) and that it is clear enough to drain away water (it is). Now I don't have any reason to climb a ladder to clear gutters.
The installation was moderately easy (I did it with help from my brother) once we figured out how to do the corners. These weren't difficult but they do take some effort to get right. We did use rivets in places to hold the guard in place (corners and short pieces) if we thought that it might shift. We used fewer than 100 rivets over a 300 foot installation. These may not have been necessary but I wasn't willing to go back up later. Also to note, we ended up with very little scrap because we were careful.
Lastly, the only tools we needed were a ladder, tin snips, a jig saw with metal cutting blade, tape measure, drill and rivet gun and rivets, permanent marker, safety glasses, and really tough gloves. You might need additional tools and safety equipment depending on your installation
I am very pleased with this product.
