Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by joker3300 Mine had no holes!
Like the description says, the unit I purchased had no holes punched out of it. We had severe thunderstorms go through the same day that I installed this. When I looked out to see if it was working, I could see that it was completely full and water which was also escaping from where I attached it to the downspout. The next day, I went outside to check on it to see if it had rolled back up and to my surprise, it was still completely full of water! Not a single hole in the product for the water to drain out of. I had to stab it with a fork! I took it off and installed it inside my garbage can where it belongs.

It doesn't extend when it rains, it just pops off and makes ALL the water go by your house. It freezes in the winter and then is useless.

Don't waste your money on these, they are a useless. Spring is so strong that it won't roll out until water is backed up about five feet up the downspout. Worse,if it freezes, it will destroy the downspout. When it does finally unroll, the drain holes immediately plug with shingle grit and leaves, so it takes days for the water to finally drain. Bad design, bad product.

I had this on one of my downspouts for two months before it twisted itself into a big knot. Totally not worth it. Just buy a expandable extender.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dismayed WORTHLESS!
I cannot believe they can even sell this product. Does not work at all! Does not unroll so water just pours out where it is attached, no matter how tight you pull the ziptie. Very cheaply made. It began raining right after I installed it and it was a complete disaster! Not only does it have holes at the end to release the water if it did unroll but it has random holes down the length of the cheap flimsy tube. Did not work for 5 seconds despite following the instructions to the letter. Complete garbage! Don't waste your time or money. Zero stars!!!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Downspouter Did not perform as advertised
The sales information did not say the product "works best" if attached to the downspout and not any angled downspouts. The packaging did say it "works best" if attached below the downspout. However it did NOT say it "doesn't work at all if there is a curved downspout piece, which I have, and the product would not open enough to drain the water. Water then accumulated in the downspout and eventually leaked through the downspout seams, defeating its purpose.
