Rec’d the standoff & tried it on my low-pitched roof (3:12) this morning. Worked exactly as you described with at least 1″ clearance from the gutter (see photos) with the “elbow” of the standoff approx 6″ from the inside edge of the gutter. Other pluses: light weight(ladder not top heavy), easy to install/remove, easy to store, contact point on roof is large & smooth so damage to shingles is minimal compared to other designs.
I will send feedback to other websites as this concern does come up on ladder standoffs.
