Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MeInCT Not the same as shown in the ad :(
The item shown in the online ad is what they USED to sell...and that actually WAS a great product. What is actually in the store is a different design that makes it absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to interconnect multiple spouts. When you follow the directions on the spout and the sticker, cutting off the squared area and try to insert one rounded end into the other, you can't. Both rounded ends are exactly the same diameter, which makes it impossible to feed one end into the other...maybe the Hulk can do it, but no normal person can. the old design was easy to connect...I really wish they'd bring back the old one...if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by masterbuilder123 Cannot join two of these.... not possible
To confirm..... there is no physical way to properly join two of these products. Cutting-off the rectangular ends results in two ends that are exactly the same diameter, and will NOT mate together. Simply not possible without "special" (meaning "highly inconvenient, and difficult" ) effort. The ONLY viable options are (1) to purchase the extension pieces that do not have the rectangular ends.... these are the by-design mating pieces. But Lowes & HD do not carry them in my area. ...or (2) buy std black corrugated drain line (in plumbing dept, usually, 10ft lengths), and insert the flex-a-spout end (after cutting off the rectangular part).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handy Excellent maneuverability
This downspout is made of very durable plastic. Its accordion style design allows for a downspout application in areas where a traditional straight downspout is not applicable. Each end has a different size opening to accommodate the standard size downspout or the larger square size. It can be formed to make tight angles and will work with a variety of different situations to carry often times destructive water away from foundations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mj123 can not connect multiple extensions
I bought these hoping to be able to connect two of them together. I can confirm with what others have said that this is NOT possible. I actually talked to someone at the manufacturer about this and they told me that with the new version of the product, there is a separate extender you can buy if you want to connect them. However, it is not sold anywhere that I could find. Maybe it's still too new?
Anyway, I ended up returning this and purchasing downspout extensions from EZ Flex. Those are made from modular pieces and can be connected for longer runs. Although it was not available at my local Home Depot, it was available via the Ship to Home option. It is a much much better product for roughly the same price. Get that instead -- look up product #205207241.

A must have product if you have gutters. Prevents erosion next to your foundation where gutters dump the water coming off the roof.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MacHic Will do the job I have for it
Having used something like this before but in different color so I was pretty sure I could utilize this one as well. The composite was very durable but almost so much that it made it difficult to pull out the extension as it is meant to be used. Once extended, it was was very bendable and moldable to have it lay/twist/turn the way I want it to. Sits on the downspout very well - quite a ways up it. Should stay on much better than the metal one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveV Simple and effective
The downspout has 4 moulded indents to help locate positions to drive screws to attach this to the bottom of your metal downspouts. The ribs are stiff so it is best to expand and shape the accordion style flexible midsection before you attach the extension. Fine adjustments can be done afterward. I have one of these at the base of all four corners of my house to direct rainwater further away.

Very effective and relatively easy to install. The best extender I've found for the price. Colors are fairly neutral.
