    Q:I purchased the strainer from HD. When installing, at least one downspout on my roof has a gutter support (screw type) blocking the entrance to the downspout, making strainer installation challenging. Difficult to access screw of the support hanger..?

          Keeps Downspouts Clean
          Multiple pine trees overhang my house and pole barn which means needles clogging up the gutters and making their way into undergroud drains. These do a great job of stopping the debris from making it to the downspouts

            Good if you want to constanly clean the gutter
            It works well preventing the downspout from clogging but does not prevent the gutters from overflowing, or stagnant water in the gutter, unless the gutter is constantly cleaned.

              Absolutely would not recommend this. I read the reviews about them clogging up gutters and thought they were exaggerating, but nope--- within a matter of weeks my gutters completely backed up and water was running off the sides during a storm. These basically allowed the debris from nearby trees to form a dam at every downspout and the water in the gutters could not drain. I had to clean everything out by hand. They were easy to install but they literally cause the thing they're supposed to prevent.

                This is a placebo
                Completely clogged up like shown in the pictures and absolutely useless.

                  Good alternative to gutter screens. Stops debris from stopping up the drain. Not perfect but works well.
