This is the perfect accessory to make your rain chain installation easy and work perfectly! The Installation Kit directs water downward onto the rain chain for maximum water flow efficiency. Available in copper, raw aluminum, and aluminum with a black, bronze, or white powder-coat finish. This kit drops into the gutter hole (An additional sleeve is provided "just in case" for larger gutter openings).
Your rain chain can either hang from the bolt or the bottom of the included D-clip. Both are perfectly secure attachment methods. It's recommended that you hang link style rain chains, such as the Double Loops Rain Chain from the bolt, so that more water flows directly onto the chain. Made of the purest, thickest materials. The D-clips are made of stainless steel for added strength and durability. The Installation Kit looks great, too!
Some gutters have a hole only, no flange, spout or outlet tube. Water tends to swirl out of a hole like that, missing the rain chain. Water also sticks to the underside of the gutter, dripping off up to several feet away. Some gutters have an opening that is larger than the rain chains link or cup. In this case, a lot of water will miss the chain at the top. The Installation Kit directs the water onto (or into) the chain, helping it to function with maximum efficiency. It's easy to remove too! Hanging the chain from the D-clip at the bottom of the kit allows for easy removal and installation. Plus, it's a more secure method of attachment.
