How to Install Your 6″  CanaleCatcher®

Included with your CanaleCatcher®:  5 self-tapping screws (4 required plus one extra)

You will need the following tools and equipment:

  1. A ladder that can be safely used at the height of your canale – see your ladder’s instructions for proper guidance in its use and placement.
  2. A #2 Phillips screwdriver or cordless electric screwdriver with a #2 Phillips bit.
  3. An electric drill and a 3/32” or 7/64” drill bit to predrill holes into the canale is helpful.
  4. If you need to modify the length of the CanaleCatcher® or downspout – a fine toothed hacksaw or tin snips.
  5. A 2” x 3” downspout elbow and other fittings to attach the downspout to your building.

Installation:

  1. If you want the CanaleCatcher® painted, paint it prior to installation with a good quality outdoor paint suitable for use with galvanized steel.
  2.  Place the downspout elbow on the outlet of your CanaleCatcher®.  Measure from the rear edge of the CanaleCatcher® opening to the vertical edge of the downspout elbow.  Adjust the position of the elbow to match your canale’s length, and trim the downspout elbow (easier) or CanaleCatcher® if necessary.  Leave the elbow on during installation.
  3. Place the CanaleCatcher® underneath the canale, aligning the rear edge of the CanaleCatcher® opening with drip edge of your canale.  The drip edge should be inside or above the opening of the CanaleCatcher®.  If the corners of the drip edge extend outside the CanaleCatcher®, bend them inwards so water will flow into the CanaleCatcher®.  The vertical edge of the downspout elbow should be touching, or almost (within ¼”) the building’s wall.
  4. If you want to pre-drill the holes into the canale, mark and drill the pilot holes.
  5. Drive a screw through the holes in each of the CanaleCatcher® tabs into the sides of the canale.
  6. Attach downspouts in accordance with local building codes.
