  • Patent number: 4072285
    Abstract: The invention permits a conventional rain gutter to be converted into a dumpable rain gutter system which can be easily cleaned. The system comprises a plurality of rain gutter supports, each including a mounting bracket adapted to be secured to the facia or trim board of a building and a gutter bracket adapted to be secured to a conventional rain gutter. A pivot connection is provided between the mounting bracket and the gutter bracket. A recoil spring normally retains the gutter upright, yet allows the gutter to pivot downward to be cleaned. Preferably, the system includes an elongated pivot rod rotatably supported by each mounting bracket and non-rotatably coupled to each gutter bracket to allow all gutter brackets to be operated simultaneously.
