Had to replace a downspout because it was stepped on. I replaced it with a downspout extension, which is longer and does a better job of letting the rain water drain away from the house.

The only issue I'm facing is if we have a heavy rain or high winds, the downspout extension comes off, thus defeats its purpose.

Is their anyway to keep this extension on when experiencing heavy rain and winds?

(can't upload a pic because its too big)

thanks

Note to Jack - some of the other SE sites seem to discourage 1 (or 2)-sentence answers. I have been asked on at least one occasion to convert an answer into a comment.
