        Comments about Tru-Check Rain Gauge:

        I bought this to replace another that lasted for about 20 years before the plastic photooxidized. I was satisfied with the wedge design that allows accurate reading in the low rainfall zone. I was disappointed that the new model does not come with a metal mounting bracket but has plastic ears on the side too wide to fit on a standard 4" post. I had to build a mounting bracket to screw to the post. If I can find the old metal bracket, it's around here somewhere, I will have to cut down the ears for it to fit. Every time something gets improved, I lose some features that I like.

        Comments about Tru-Check Rain Gauge:

        Great example of a product that has been cheapened to the point of dissatifaction. Mounts via slotted screw holes through plastic ears with two tiny screws which by the way are not rust proof or rust resistant. Now to empty the gauge you must remove it from the post by sliding it up off of the mounting screws. The slotted holes are too far apart to mount to a 4" X 4" post or a verticle 2" x 4".

            One of the best features was that it fit into the bracket that held our former rain gauge, so didn't need new installation
