    "this thing is not only easy to install but looks hella pretty since you cant see it at all! it hides very well inside the gutter that i had to check that it was still there. that said, ice can be a bit of a problem in blocking it, but once the ice melts, it's right as rain!"

    "keeps the debris out and also the water out sometimes. the best solution is simple: cut the foam's bottom part into an L-shape so the water is unrestricted. the standard shape tends to block waterflow in the gutter."

    "does its job as expected, no cleaning required unless you need to deep clean the gutter, stainless screws will keep it in place for a LONG time. that said, it is a bit flimsy in its consutrction so handle with care, and there is a bit of splash back from experience during rains."
