Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Moro Frost King Wedge Downspout screen -W-103
It is too early in the fall season to give an unqualified endorsement of this product, but from the initial results I can say that it s much better than the typical aluminum strainers that you stick down the downspout opening.
The wedge will eliminate the leaf problems quite well and I think will do a pretty good job with the maple "helicopter " seeds. I get some kind of sludge build up in my gutters and it does seem to partially clog this device. Also we have lots of pine needles and I'm not sure it will not clog this device. The good thing about this design is that even though it may partially clog up, it seems that there will be some flow around the sides. I f this keeps the gutters from overflowing that will be great. Time will tell over this season.
Even though I do expect to have to clean this device, I think it will reduce the number of times I have to clean it. Also, it appears that it can be cleaned with a brush without removal.
Overall, I think it is worth the money and time to install which by the way is easy to do.
I will give an update near the end of the leaf season

Great idea of an item to leep leaves out and still allow water to pass through if it ever will rain again in Los Angeles. I do hope this grade of plastic will hold up over the sunny years ahead which is my only concern.

BETTER THAN THE GALVANIZED ONES WHICH DO NOT ALLOW MUCH WATER THRU AND RUST OUT.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mainecooncat Much Better than Traditional Screens
Still requires periodical cleaning, and removal of debris buildup, but not nearly as susceptible to clogging as the traditional aluminum screens inserted in downspout, and will still allow water to pass under light to moderate debris buildup conditions.

Gutter screws interfere with installation. Recommend caution for purchaser.
