                        A:  You can fasten the bracket to a post, empty it by pulling up the tube and tipping it over.

                          Fairly accurate, cheap and straightforward rain gauge for the money. You have to be fairly close to read it and it measures by the 10th of an inch which is standard. It is a tube, so it has a 'miniscus'; you measure the bottom. It is easy to mount on a fence, rail or on a stake which is what I did. The glass tube sits in a malleable metal bracket that is easy to work. I see several one-star review here saying the glass will break in the cold and, yes, it will. However, this is a very cheap rain gauge and the package also warns of this so I will not make a big fuss of it in my review. You get what you pay for and the warning is there. This rain gauge is made in China.

                          It hasn’t rained yet, I’ll let you know. The Inches Scale stands out. The glass has its advantages, but we’ve had a few and the glass does eventually break and have to replace. This one I’ve had since I bought it. It measures the amount of rain. I like the small size that we can put on the deck railing.
