Those who have expressed problems with Rhino brand gutter guards have more problems with professional installation than the product itself. Hand Man How To reports that a customer's factory warranty was voided because of a faulty installation, which included missing screws and a butt joint installation error.

Rhino brand gutter guards are highly recommended by professional gutter installers because of the lack of problems identified by customers. Rhino guards are lightweight mesh that can handle 4.5 gallons of rain per minute without damage. They also separate the debris from all moisture, which drips into the gutter and is deposited through the rain spouting to eliminate the damage heavy weight can inflict on the gutters. Rhino guards also include mesh that has a 57-percent open area that helps the gutters dry quickly.
