A Rocklin inventor is helping solve an age-old problem: icicles. Those dangerous spikes of ice hanging and dropping from eaves in the Sierra Nevada winters are no match for Robert Lenney’s invention, the Gutterglove IceBreaker. This green product uses a single heat cable built into a gutter guard, which radiates heat and melts all frozen things near it. This low-energy solution to preventing icicles also allows for snow harvesting, using the gutter to divert melted snow into a rainwater storage tank. There’s also a heatless option for those below the snow line this wet season. For more information, visit www.gutterglove.com.
