They don't get the water in the gutter for me.
I sprayed water about 6 feet up on the roof and let it run down. The water seems to just shoot over the nose of this thing and 30% or more drops off the side defeating the purpose of the rain gutters in the first place. I would guess it is a surface tension issue and the water does not spread out on the plastic to form a thin film that might hug the nose and get into the gutter. The water seems to channel and does not make the turn. My roof is not steep at all. I can walk on it easily. Measures around 15 degree slope.

    You still gotta clean out the guards
    I’ve had these installed for a number of years. Yes it keeps debris out of gutter but the groove in the guard gets clogged. Any small debris has to be cleaned out several times a year. Things such as pine needles, pollen, blooms from trees, and any other small tree debris clogs the guards. If you have only large tree debris they will work for that but anything else, you’ll be on a ladder 2-3 times a year cleaning out the grooves. I’m currently looking for a better design to replace these and it’s a challenge. The best are installed by companies who have the patents. These are better than nothing but not a solution to cleaning gutters for good.

      Time will tell
      These aren't very much fun to install. Do yourself a favor, get a vinyl siding removal tool if you don't have one, it'll make installation easier, but still not much fun. Use the tool to help pull the guard towards you to lock it into place. I've attached a picture of the tool I'm referring to.

        Time will tell
        I haven't had these installed long enough to comment on how they work, but I want to try to help someone. No matter what, you will probably hate your life when installing these. To hate your life a little less, pick up a vinyl siding removal tool if you don't already have one. These things are very difficult to lock into place, and even worse to remove if you have to. A siding removal tool makes this a little bit easier, and safer than the pick I was using on the first piece I installed..

          Works well: A trick to help install
          After trying a number of other gutter cover products, I found these to work the best. I found any cover where the top is not smooth (holes, screen) will catch leaf debris and form a "mat" that the water will run over, negating the function of the gutters. On these covers, leaves slide off the top of the cover while water wraps around and goes through the slots into the gutter. Originally I was bothered by large trees that clogged my gutters every year; I've had these on my house for over 25 years without problem. Install these yourself and save a lot of money. The back of the cover slips under the shingles, and the front side snaps onto the gutter lip. Snapping the lip of the cover onto the front edge of the gutter is a bit difficult. I used a flat, right angle pry bar (like HD #45600) and inserted it through the drain slots after installing the cover. You could also make a tool by bending an old putty knife to form a short right angle. Give the pry bar a sharp "yank" and the cover should move forward and lock onto the gutter lip. Start at one end and repeat this for the other slots until the entire cover has its lip locked on the gutter edge. Be careful not to lose your balance while on the ladder. The covers can slid left/right to close gaps with adjoining covers. The plastic material is soft and can be trimmed if needed with a utility knife or cutting shears. Now here's a trick to help installation: Apply petroleum jelly to the gutter lip top and lip inside bottom before installing. Be careful the slippery petroleum jelly doesn't interfere with your ladder grip. This lubricant will help the cover slide into place during installation. Before moving the ladder, wipe down any dirt and hand prints (likely from using the petroleum jelly) on the gutter and cover with spray cleaner and a rag.

            Installation was easy and worked as advertised.... I am very pleased. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 1. Installation: Was easy to install with wide putty knife and a tool I made to snap the guards in place. See pictures. 2. Do they work?: A few days after installation we got about 3 inches of snow. I was afraid I would either get icicles from dripping snow melt or the water would "jet" off the guard.... Much to my surprise, The only dripping I got as the snow melted, was where the snow formed a cornice over the edge of the guard. ALL the other water from the melting snow "rolled" over the edge and into the gutter where it was transferred to the down spouts..... I was actually very pleased with how well they worked..... I think this will be the last of my gutters filling with leaves. Images show the tools I used including a metal "puller" tool I fashioned out of an old political yard sign metal wire frame. The "puller" made it easy to "snap" the lower edge of the guard into place. It worked great.

                Nice design just not in every case as with mine.
                It may not be a fair review. I bought 6 to test. Trying on the more critical areas of the roof, the heavy build up areas. They were not the best for the situation. They installed easy enough and I liked that part. It's just my gutters were already in place and I didn't want to try to readjust them, so the covers (which were just how I would want them to be in theory) were just to tall causing the water to pool at best and run back toward the roof at worst. In my effort to try to remedy this I drilled holes through the cover allowing water to drain into gutter rather than stand still and pool on the cover. I am most likely to replace with the other style micro screen, I think will work better. I had the round trim at my other house installed at the same time as the gutters were installed and they never clogged up like my present style does ( basic screen with 1/4" holes roughly). The micro screen should keep gutter clean and maple seeds and pine needles out and with power washing the micro mesh periodically should be easy enough without reengineering the whole system.

                works well, but install can be challenge
                I've installed these on +3 houses One installed, they work great. I used a T-mending plate to help with install. Slits can clog, especially from oak trees in the spring. I can easily clean the slits with a metal leaf rake (1 story house).
