Title: Gutter hanging bracket device with rigidity augmenting U-shaped cross-sectional channel construction

Abstract: A gutter hanging bracket device includes an elongated body portion adapted to span an open top of a gutter between front and rear sides of the gutter and having a generally U-shaped cross-sectional channel construction, a forward attachment portion merging from a front end of the body portion and adapted to engage with the front side of the gutter, and a rearward attachment portion merging from a rear end of the body portion and adapted for attaching the rear side of the gutter to an adjacent external structure so as to support the body portion in a cantilevered fashion from the external structure and thereby hang the gutter adjacent to the external structure. The forward and rearward attachment portions form extensions of the body member such that the forward and rearward attachment portions both have generally U-shaped cross-sectional channel constructions continuous with that of the body portion.
