Cover the rain spouts and antennas with pool noodles (dollar store?).
Make sure you strap it down tight, the less it moves the less likely it will rip or tear.

Someone on here posted to use tennis balls to cover the downspouts. You cut an x in the and they slip right on! I used to use pool noodles or pipe insulation. The tennis balls worked much easier!

I have seen that posted as well.
My thinking is, use one item for more than one purpose.
