How to seal gutter seems?

Hello all,

I have "seemless" aluminum gutters that have developed leaks at the corners (i.e. seems). I think it's from water that freezes and pushes the seems open. Anyway, I have tried silicon gutter repair, but some of the corners are already leaking this winter. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I use this product:

It's clear like silicone, and it's great for brushing (or pouring... they make a similar product that is self-levelling) into gutters to seal up those leaks. I like to fill up those gutter corners so that there isn't a "dip" in the corner that will hold water, and then coat the seams up the sides as well, making sure you're getting the sealant into the joint, not just painting the surface.
