Agreed. Maybe I'll work on that. It will be a little problematic because the gutter is angled relative to the downspout, but I'm guesing it's possible to purchase angled outlet attachments.

Yes, they make plastic flexible elbows, though they won't flow as well as a smooth pipe. You might be able to just cut and bend a standard aluminum downspout.

It works like a charm:



Weep holes, too:



And I realized that due to the geometry, without twisting the downspout, there's no way to make the opening bigger:



I'll see how often it gets clogged, and make that change if necessary.

Thanks for the help!

I think you have created a new problem, see where the 3 holes now allow the water to flow back to the wood, it will rot over time.

you could glue with silicone a 1 inch long tube (copper water pipe) over each hole so they extend out and drip clear of the gutter, or make an edge along the bottom of the gutter out of a bead of silicone so when water gets to the bottom edge of the gutter it drips rather than run back to the wood.

Yes, I thought about that.
