rain barrel help needed

rain barrel help needed

i have a rain barrel coming off the house with plastic down spout going into plastic tubing, for lack of a better term, into the barrel. this needs to be removeable since i live in michigan and i reroute the water, in the winter, to a traditional downspout and away from the house on the ground (so the barrel doesn't freeze). in a heavy rain, the downspout and the tubing to the rainbarrel come apart. right now, the only thing holding them together is that they fit together and there is a hole drilled in them with a screw going through it but this obviously not enough for heavy rains. what can i use to hold them together all spring/summer/fall that is not permanent? thanks in advance
