Rods & Nuts for KWM Gutter Brackets


Gutter Brackets hung from the roof with a rod are called hanger units. Existing roofs, with a standard shingle installation, will have the rod placed over the first course of shingles and the flat part of the rod secured with 1½” screws under the second row of shingles.

A new roof installation allows the rods to be placed under the roofing material, especially important for tile or slate roofs.

The 11″ rods are available in stainless steel and aluminum. Stainless rods are shipped straight and need to be bent onsite, while aluminum rods can be bent by hand. A rod bending tool can be rented to consistently bend the stainless steel rods to the same angle. The rod bender deposit is refundable upon the return of the tool.

For coastal locations we recommend using our marine stainless steel rods.

Rods are shipped with the 2 stainless steel nuts required.

6″ Plain Fascia Brackets – KWM Compatible


Our KWM compatible cast brackets consist of a select group of Classic Gutter Systems, LLC top-selling brackets. The back hook of these brackets have been modified to fit gutter produced from a 6″ KWM gutter machine.

Please note that any of our cast brackets can be made as a KWM compatible bracket with enough lead time. A minimum order may be required.

Fascia brackets are available in solid brass or chromated aluminum. Our cast brass items are 88% copper, medium in color and will oxidize over time. Chromating is an industrial primer for aluminum castings and needs to be painted.

We recommend spacing our fascia brackets every 32″ on center. Fascia brackets can be mounted the fascia board with three 1-1/2″ stainless steel hex head screws.

For an angled fascia application we offer 7.5, 15, 22.5, 30, 37.5 and 45 degree wedges to be used with our fascia brackets. In a situation where a fascia installation is not applicable, a fascia bracket and a roof bar can be used. See Additional Information below for wedge selection.

Tie Straps, Stainless Steel


A tie strap is used in combination with a hidden bracket to support the front of the gutter. Prices listed are for the tie strap only and do not include the bracket.

The combination of the bracket and tie strap is sometimes referred to as a “clip and screw installation”. The bracket is clipped into the gutter, screwed through the existing hole in the back of the bracket, through the gutter and into the fascia with a 1½” stainless steel screw. Another 1½” stainless steel screw through the back of the tie strap and into the fascia keeps the gutter plumb and extremely strong.

Please see hidden brackets for bracket options.

Note: The 6″ tie strap can be used with KWM half round brackets.


Wedges for Angled Fascia


These cast Bracket Wedges are specifically designed for use with our Cast Fascia Brackets on angled fascia. Install these wedges between the brackets and fascia to compensate for the fascia’s angle.

The first photo shows a wedge used with our Cast Fascia Bracket. Second photo shows wedge front and side views plus dimensions. (Note: no photo of the 7.5 degree wedge.)

Available in 6 sizes – 7.5, 15, 22.5, 30, 37.5 and 45 degrees in solid brass or chromated aluminum (ready for paint).
