If you want to mulch.... buy the factory mulch kit for your mowers.
This will provide the results you want, save you money and frustration.
You have to do more than block the discharge off to mulch.

If you want something to flip closed to avoid slinging clippings into a tree ring or something... then these covers are fine. Shut them a second while you pass by, then flip back open...

I know it isn't 100% professional but is it possible to add some heat and bend your factory chute to be a chute blocker when you need it. I did that with my 2 Toro chutes. A little heat, bending, cutting and welding and I have a functional solution. I even painted them Toro red after it was all welded up. When not needed they are held up with a bungee cord. I am not cheap and would buy one if I needed to mulch but I only mulch leaves and this works great for that too.
(Now please don't hump me about not having a deflector chute)
