Rain Barrel diverter for round downspouts

I watched the video where Roger Cook adds a rain barrel and uses a diverter connected to the downspouts. Once the rain barrel is full the water is diverted back to the downspout. The diverter that Roger used was for a retangular downspout. My house has round downspouts, does anyone know of a diverter that will work with round downspouts? I have search on the Internet and have had no luck. Thanks in advance for you help.

Flex connections in the plumbing department, HmDpt or Lowe's or Ace or T/V.

I made my own rain barrels. All i did was cut my downspouts shorter and put the elbow that was on the bottom just above my barrels. My barrels have a screen on the top of them and as far as an overflow goes, i put a plastic screw-in connection just below the top of my barrel and attached plastic flexible tubing down to the ground.
