Hey /diy/ here's a cheap little diy pin I made for the downspouts that lay across my lawn. It was annoying having to either not screw them together and have them loose or screw them together and bring out the screwdriver every time I mowed the lawn.
Need: wire coathanger, drill, 1/8" bit, vice or good pliers.
Snap off about 3" of the coathanger
Bend it into the shape shown using vice
Drill hole into where your downspout connects
Put the pin into the the hole starting from the 90 degree bend and it will never fall through the hole or come out unless you pull it out.
