Gutter spout protective covers

My FS 8288SS has 12 gutter spouts and before I put the cover on it I needed to come up with something that would protect the cover from the spots poking holes in it. This is what I came up with and I thought that I would share.

Swim noodles (the ones with the lager holes in the center) cut to 4" pieces with an angle and notch cut out to match the reveal of the gutter and siding.

Thanks for looking,
Tom G

Good job Tom39, Many here use pool noodles or tennis balls to cover the spouts but you are the first to post pics with the notches to match the profile.
Again, nice job!

Tennis balls

Nicely done.

Just put my trailer away for the winter yesterday. Before installing the cover I bought cans of tennis balls from Walmart. $1.50 per can of three balls. I cut an X into each ball and pushed one onto each drain spout. We will see how it works.
