I used this around an eyesore telephone type pole in our flowerbed - it was easy to install and worked wonderfully! The clematis is already climbing it. I've ordered two more sets to use on our corner spouts with blue morning glories and yellow nasturtiums. I can't wait to see the end result - I anticipate it will soften the tall brick corners and add so much beauty. Delighted to find Kinsman!

Bought your down spout trellis to go around a 4x4 cloths pole , I had to re order another set of 4 trellis, as I needed two to go around the 4x4 pole. So far it looks like it is going to work and I will have vines growing around my pole this summer. I must say that I received the trellis with in a few days of my order.

Such a unique idea! Trellis is sturdy and directions to install easy to follow. My neighbor was impressed and bought one for herself too!
Ordered to go around a 4x4 clothes line pole (how many people know what that is) the pole being larger than a down spout , I had to place another order for 4 more. The product looks good, not too noticeable on the post'

Can't wait for spring to come so I can put out the trellises & start plants to grow.

Too late in the season for official review, but installation was easy. I did spray paint the trellis cover to match our gutter downspouts. Anxious to see how clematis "climbs" its new home next spring!

Great product. Still waiting for flowers I planted to bloom to really see how they'll look, but I think they'll be exactly as I wanted. Thank you!

I bought a set and they worked so well I bought a second set. My thunbergia is trailing more and more everyday. The red morning glory is also growing at warp speed.
So happy a friend had the trellis' and gave me Kinsman's website. The trellis' go over a cement porch wall and are just perfect. Love my humming bird feeder too.

This trellis is perfect for the downspout next to my porch. No holes to put into the mortar.

We love these so much we have them on all five downspouts and two light poles. We painted them white to match the downspouts. My clematis look awesome on these. Highly recommend!

I Had a problem - how can I train a vine to grow up the side posts of a new Arbor in my garden? It was solved by using a gutter trellis around one side of the post. I did not even need to use screws to attach, just the "zip ties" that were provided!

I am using the Downspout Cover Trellis along the concrete top of our porch wall. I saw the trellis at a neighbor's apartment in our Senior Living complex.
I have one plant happily growing along one trellis and plan to buy more creeping plants to utilize the other trellises. Wish I had purchased several years ago.

Really worked well, very sturdy. Only flaw was lacking attachment pieces, reason for 4 out of 5 rating.

I have multiple clematis vines that a prior owner planted near pergola posts. They had tried to tie them around the structure for support. Looking for a solution I ordered these and have attached them to 6 posts now to provide a structure for them to grown around. They are thriving!! I wish I could upload photos to show the before and after as it is quite dramatic! Last summer before these they kept falling over in a huge bundle, now for the first time they have already reached the top of he pergola and hopefully will provide a beautiful canopy by the end of summer!

I have a lantern on a pole in my front yard and wanted clematis growing up it. I looked everywhere for something to help me make this happen and finally found this product. What's cool about it is you don't pay attention to the trellis and I set it up so mine goes around the pole. Right now my vine is small so I only need the trellis to be small. But once it's ready I will attach the next trellis section on top and let the vine keep going. I love it!

With some stainless steel screws attaching the frames to our posts, I am hopeful that these frames will hold up my Princess Diana clematis. We live at the Oregon coast where everything metal rusts remarkably quickly so will keep you posted on how these frames hold up.

I could not wait for the Downspout Trellis Covers to arrive. Sadly, I do not know what type of downspout they are designed for, but they are dramatically larger than the area around my downspouts and can not be attached in any of the areas I was hoping to use them.

These worked great for covering our downspout. The clematis is growing well on it already. Delivered fast, packaged well, instructions easy to follow. Just wish the long zip ties had been a tad longer, since that would have made installation a bit easier.

These semicircular trellises are perfect for covering a downspout with beautiful clematis or other climbing vines.
Posted By: Lady Mayflower
The description didn't include the width for anchoring to the exterior wall; it was too wide. The cover itself was good quality. It was $14.00 USPS to return the cover since Kinsman Company doesn't cover return shipping costs. It's suggested that the product description includes the width for exterior wall installation.

Although we have not had time to put the trellis up yet we have thoroughly inspected it and it appears to be a great and sturdy product. I hope to get it up soon I can't wait to see my new Clematis growing beautifully up my downspout !!

I am using this as a support around an outdoor lamppost. The set includes some hardware but I had to order an additional set of zip ties from another retailer. It is so easy to assemble that I am going to order a couple more sets, look for some shade-loving plants, and set up the trellises on some downspouts.

Love the Idea, & are Decent quality. I needed longer cable ties for Mine however they worked great, also I painted mine white to match my Home & to prevent Future Rust.
Customer Service By Diane at Kinsman Co was exemplary, I would have ordered elsewhere but customer service sold me Thank You for the Great product

The downspout trellis fits nicely around a light post and is unobtrusive except for the cheap white plastic fasteners. Similar to handcuff straps (not that I would know from experience!) they are difficult to manage and stand out like sore thumbs. I quickly reached for my green twist ties and was able to put this thing together in about 5 minutes. Now it's sturdy AND unobtrusive

These are very easy to install using cable ties. Note that they have to be bigger than your downspout to leave room for the plants to twine around them. I bought some slightly longer cable ties to make it easier slide one end through the other. My Sweet Autumn clematis is already up to the fourth section. I'm back buying more!

Had I know that I would not have ordered them. From the picture it looked like the fit tightly around the downspout. They are at least 1 inch wider than my downspout. I returned them.
***** There are two options for attaching the Downspout Cover Trellis. One is to use the included hardware to affix to your house, and the second option is to use the cable ties that are also supplied. *****

I bought one about ten years ago but used it on a pergola support pole. It is still doing well in our area where everything rusts away and the vines trail up to the pergola roof. So I bought more to put on the porch posts.

I bought the downspout cover to use as a "cage" around a lampost for my fairly large clematis. It couldn't be easier to install and looks to be plenty sturdy to hold the plant. So far no issues with wind disturbing it either.
