Installing a Wide Mouth Outlet onto your gutter system will eliminate debris snags and increase water flow. It opens the whole floor of the gutter and is roughly 4 times larger that a typical cup outlet.
Most gutter outlets are installed with zip screws sticking up from the bottom of the gutter floor and caked in caulking. The Wide Mouth Outlet rearranges where the screws are placed so they are out of the way of becoming potential debris stoppers.
The Raindrop® Wide Mouth Outlet comes in 2 sizes to fit a 5 inch gutter and a 6 inch gutter. The installation process is the same for both sizes. Follow the instructions below, and you will successfully install a Wide Mouth Outlet.
Wide Mouth Outlet – High Back
Note: Use of screws for connecting Wide Mouth and downspout piping is a common practice, however Raindrop® recommends the use of pop-rivets whenever possible because of the lower profile and decreased chances of debris being snagged over time by a screw tip inside the gutter or downspout.
Tools Needed: Tin Snips, Tape Measure, Hand Seamers, Rivet Gut, 1/8” rivets, Drill, 1/8” drill bit, Pencil, Caulk Gun.
