- If you do not presently have a 3×4 downspout you will need to upgrade to a 3×4 downspout.
- If you are retrofitting or installing with a 6″K gutter you will need to bend the front lip on the Spout down to a 90 degree angle prior to installing the Spout onto the 6″K gutter.
Steps For Installation
1. Remove present outlet
If new gutter, go to Step 2
Place Template in gutter with hole centered where you want center of outlet.
3. Draw Cut Lines
Hold Template securely and draw X lines in Template using a marker.
4. Cut Lines
Cut gutter along X lines using tin snips or similar tool. DO NOT CUT PAST END OF X LINES.
5. Create Tabs
Bend all 4 tabs down to a 90 degree angle.
6. Slide On Spout
Slide back of Spout up behind back of gutter ensuring all 4 tabs are inside the new Spout.
7. Install Back Screws
Holding Spout tightly up against bottom of gutter, install two screws through back of gutter, through back of Spout, into fascia board.
8. Install Front Screws
Holding Spout tightly up against bottom of gutter, install two Zip screws through front flange on Spout into front of gutter. The Spout gutter outlet installation is complete. All work up at gutter is done.
9. Attach Off
Install Off into top of 3×4 downspout using 1 Zip screw on each side.
10. Install Base
Measure and cut downspout to its bottom elbow. Hold downspout on house. Place Base (for A Elbow) or B-Base (for B Elbow) under bottom elbow and mark house. Install proper Base.
11. Install SpoutSecure
Install SpoutSecure 6 inches to 4 feet above Base. Replace downspout and install Stainless Steel Eyebolt with Stainless Steel Wing Nut in SpoutSecure to secure downspout.
12. SpoutSecure for B-Elbow
If using B-Elbow, install The SpoutSecure 6 inches to 4 feet above B-Base.
13. Attach Downspout to House
Place downspout up on house and install Stainless Steel Eyebolt with Stainless Steel Wing Nut in SpoutSecure to secure downspout.
14. SpoutStop for Underground Pipe
If installing into an Underground Pipe, install the SpoutStop (3” or 4”) into your underground pipe. Downspout will rest on Thru-Bolt.
15. Sit Downspout for Underground Pipe
Measure downspout so it is snug from gutter to Thru-Bolt but able to be lifted out. Place downspout up on house so downspout is secure at its top and sitting on Thru-Bolt in SpoutStop.
16. SpoutSecure for Underground Pipe
Install a SpoutSecure anywhere up to 4 feet up from SpoutStop.
Designed for 2-story and higher downspouts. Installed about 1/3 down from rain gutter, the WindBreaker ensures secure horizontal stabilization of the downspout.
Especially useful for homes using Rain Barrels or Underground Pipes. The SpoutScreen keeps most debris from moving down the downspout into Rain Barrels or Underground Pipes. Please know that when SpoutScreens are used, debris will collect in the OFF. But with the easily removable SpoutOff downspout, checking and cleaning your SpoutScreen is fast and safe.
Especially useful on indented and irregular surfaces such as stone, round pillars, etc. The SpoutOff SpoutShim creates a strong, flat surface for installation of SpoutOff components on irregular surfaces.
We strongly encourage the use of 3×4 downspouts with The SpoutOff to create the best water flow out of gutters, down downspouts and away from your home. However, there are circumstances where a 2×3 downspout is needed or a 3×4 downspout must be reduced into a smaller pipe, through a deck, etc. So The SpoutOff Reducer 2×3 is very useful in these situations.
