Drop-Away Gutter
I think my drop-away gutter is a great idea. It's designed to eliminate the need to use a ladder to clean out the gutter. The gutter has a hinge on one side that's attached to pivoting brackets. By pulling on a lever attached by wire to the brackets, the homeowner can let the gutter down for cleaning. Or, he can leave the gutter down during the winter so there's no ice build-up to ruin the roof. He could let the gutter down from the ground, even on two-story buildings.
  My invention is still in the prototype stage. However, it took second place last year in the "Peoples Choice" category at the Minnesota State Fair inventor's group exhibit. I'm looking for a manufacturer. (Bill Kurtz, 2187 State Rd. 87, St. Croix Falls, Wis. 54024 ph 715 483-3866).
