Snap Together – Do-It Yourself

Durable – Easy to Install




Install drop outlet at predetermined downspout location (for 5″ see instructions with unit). Install a hanger at highest point on fascia board at farthest point from drop outlet. Always slope down to downspout location. Mark chalk line and position hangers every 24″ (610 mm). Slope should be ¼” per 10 ft. (6 mm per 3 m). End cap may be attached directly to drop outlet if at end of gutter run. If gutter continues around corner position hangers at same height and no closer than 12″ (305 mm) from corner.


Lightly sand surfaces to receive cement with 100 grit paper. Surfaces should be clean and dry. Minimum temperature should be 32° F (0° C). Drying time of cement is approximately 30 seconds. Use Plastmo cement only. Install end caps while still on ground. Apply cement to inside of end cap. Small guides will keep it in place while cement dries.


For corners, sand lightly, apply cement in zig-zag pattern from front to back. Snap gutter section with attached corner and/or end cap into hangers.


Where two gutter sections join sand surfaces, apply cement on cleaned connectors in zig-zag pattern from front to back. Hook connector onto rear edge of gutter, then press connector onto front of gutter to snap in. Install elbow onto drop outlet. Measure downspout and cut to size between elbows.  Install third elbow at bottom of downspout. Note: Do not cement elbows or downspout.


Secure upper and lower pipe holder sockets to wall. Use one pair for each downspout section. Instructions for A and B placement included with part. For a two story house use downspout connector to join two lengths of downspout.Note: Do not cement.


An elbow with an extra piece of downspout may be used to direct water in any direction away from house. A well outlet with well cap for underground drainage is used to complete downspout.


Make sure all cemented ?ttings are at least 2″ (51 mm) away from hangers.


On particularly long runs you should install an expansion connector.  Only needed when there is no downspout, therefore, no drop outlet, two corners at either end of gutter run and there is more than 25 ft. (7.6 m) of gutter between corners. Instructions included with unit.
