Easy winterization for your Flexi-Fit Downspout Diverter. Before the cold weather hits, simply take your Flexi-Fit Diverter out of the downspout and place the Flexi-Fit Diverter Winter Cover over the diverter hole and fasten with two philips head screws. When the warm weather returns, unfasten the screws, remove the winter cover, reinsert your Flexi-Fit Diverter, and your back to catching some rain.
I love the simplicity of adding a cover to the downspout diverter. Although I have not been able to see how well it operates when in use, I do love the concept. However, I do wish that it had a better way to latch onto the diverter. It is easily removed - almost too easy - and seems subject to falling off with a squirrel or bird's curiosity.

This is an easy to slip on hole cover for those using the flexible water diverter using the same hole diameter during rain barrel season. Just pull out the diverter, and insert the cover.
Makes sense to pull out the diverter during winter when freezing is a danger to eliminate concern about ice back up in the downspout. It also spares the diverter winter wear and tear, so it's good to go next spring. I drain my barrels, and seal 'em up with the diverter and water feed pile inside so I know exactly where to find 'em in spring. I also cut a small piece of PVC pipe with the same diameter of the hole where water feeds into the barrel, and put a pvc cap over pipe to seal the barrel completely in off-season.
While there are screw holes to give the cover a more permanent mount, I've not had to use screws on aluminum downspouts, the little catch points grip good enough in my case. Unknown on 1st Dec 2015
Even though haven't gone through winter yet, design seem solid. Unknown on 22nd Sep 2015
I'm sure my neighbors have wondered how I can so easily transform a mear barrel into a very
efficient rainbarrel, actually 3 rainbarrels. Your products are what makes it so easy.

Love everything I have gotten from you and always amazed at how fast I get it. I think I have always gotten it the next day after I place an order. The winter cover were super easy to install. Matt Raven on 19th Nov 2013
