Rain Chain Installation Kit
An installation kit securely and effectively attaches the rain chain to the gutter opening. You will need one installation kit per rain chain.
The kit includes an rectangular piece of metal with a hole in it that sits inside the gutter over the downspout hole. This reduces the size of the opening to the correct correct size for most effective water flow onto the rain chain. Apply a bead of waterproof caulking to underside of the plate to secure and waterproof it onto the gutter.
The sleeve will drop through the plate. It will also be sealed with a bead of caulking to the plate. The cylinder that drops through the gutter has an attachment pin to secure the rain chain to the sleeve.
These kits are designed to look great, effectively funnel the water onto the chain, and securely hold the chain in place.
Installation kits are available in copper, bare aluminum, and powder coated aluminum in bronze, black and white.
Note that it is not advisable to use a bare aluminum installation kit on copper gutters, or to use an copper installation kit on aluminum gutters. When copper, aluminum and water come are in constant contact with water the aluminum will eventually corrode away.
