first off, what is the connector piece called ? this is the piece, with the screws going up into, holding it to the gutter. these screws.

seems to me that they would come up with something better....... hmmmm


i just had an idea. geeze i could modify one to work = no screws.

That's the 'outlet'. The screws or rivets go DOWN through it, not up.

i was googlin. they were calling it a "drop outlet".


ok. the ones i have seen, drop down through the hole cut into gutter.
you are saying the screws should go down through the outlet, grab the gutter and tighten ?

i found they already make a version of my idea.

That would be fine. Use Lucas Gutter sealer around the underside of the lip before you pop it in. Then, seal around it again after it's in.

just 1/4" hex head stainless screws, or the little phillips pan heads. seal up the screw heads with the gutter sealer when done

that isn't what i was asking. tinner says the screws go down from inside the gutter. all i have seen, including mine, the screws go up through the gutter and into the holes on the outlet, clamping the gutter in between. but the problem with that, is the screws catch the leaves.

Which is why I only use rivets. Less than 20 bucks for a decent rivet gun, only $5 from HF.

Historically, outlets are marked and cut on the outside of the gutter, the gutter flipped over, and the outlet pushed down into position.
Water and ice load, such as frozen downspouts just pull them in tighter. Mounted on the outside, all the pressure, if any, is on the screws.
Screws or poprivets go in from above too.
The outlet you posted also goes in from above. The pushouts on it go through the gutter and the 1/8" lip sits on the lip of your cut. The pushouts prevent it from backing out.
