Random/arbitrary question thread

I created this thread as a place to ask random/arbitrary questions or inquiries, of a specific and singular nature.
Those that don’t apply to, relate to, or fit into any of the normal topics and subjects of discussion.
I will post two questions of this type I have, that will serve as an example.

Anyone with some sort of leaf guard setup on their rain gutters?

  1. Self installed?
  2. Did it require new gutters too?
  3. Would you do it again?

@Festus We’ve made some in the past out of thin expanded metal. Not sure if it will work for your application.
I have done it 2 ways.
I made a rough mock-up for a visual, from scrap, to hopefully give you an idea of what I did.
The first 2 pics are of a flat piece of exp.metal. It covered the gutter and had a lip that slipped between the bottom edge of the shingles and the metal drip edge.

The second 2 are with the exp. metal bent so it just drops in the gutter and sits there on its own.
