Stiff LeafBlox bristles fill the gutter keeping debris out while allowing water to easily flow through. Most leaves and large items will pass right over the LeafBlox. Most small debris caught near the top of the brush will blow away or decompose through natural weather cycles. LeafBlox can bend to accommodate any gutter shape or corner.
