Measuring Instructions for 6″, 8″ and 11″ Canale Catchers®

How to Measure for the 6″ Canale Catcher®

Measure your canale’s width and length.  The width should be within 1/2” of the Canale Catcher® and the length should be 11-13”. If the length is less than 11”, the Canale Catcher® or the downspout elbow may need to be cut shorter with a hacksaw or tin snips.  If the length is greater than 13″, you may need to add a short length of downspout between the Canale Catcher® and the downspout elbow.  Most 6” canales are galvanized steel, but could be other materials. The Canale Catcher® will fit other materials.

If the width is more than 1/2” different than the Canale Catcher®, it may stick out or miss some water, and the tabs may need to be bent to fit.  If your canale is another size, contact us for further assistance.

If the canale is not in good condition (such as decay or wood rot), have it evaluated by a qualified contractor before attaching a Canale Catcher® to it.

If you are not experienced with home repair or maintenance, contact a qualified and licensed contractor.

 

How to Measure for the 8″ Canale Catcher®

Measure your canale’s width, length, and thickness.  (See Picture1).  The width should be within 1/2” of the Canale Catcher® and the length should be 15-17”.  If the length is less than 15”, the Canale Catcher® or the downspout elbow may need to be cut shorter with a hacksaw or tin snips.  If the length is greater than 17″, you may need to add a short length of downspout between the Canale Catcher® and the downspout elbow.  If the thickness of the canale is less than the included (3/4”) screws, use shorter screws.

If the width is more than 1/2” different than the Canale Catcher®, it may stick out or miss some water, and the tabs may need to be bent to fit.  If your canale is another size, contact us for further assistance.

If the canale is not in good condition (such as decay or wood rot), have it evaluated by a qualified contractor before attaching a Canale Catcher® to it.
