I would like to get rid of my standard downspouts and install rain chains, but I'm not sure how to attach the chains to the gutters. Does anyone have any ideas?

Smile rain chains on gutters

When I installed a rain chain in place of a downspout, I squeezed the first couple of links with pliers so they'd go up through the hole in the gutter and then I just stuck a metal rod (I used the shaft of a broken Phillips screwdriver) through the first link to hold the chain in place.

Rain chains are a qwuick way to get gutter rust out around the outlets, also, they will lead to other house problems down the road. Enjoy.
