I have a round wire mesh thing that is used to go into the gutter drain pipe on the roof so leaves don’t go down the pipe. It fits perfectly in the 4” dust collector hose and can be removed in about 1 second.

I had the same issue and found the gutter drain cover fit perfectly. I found that the openings weren't large enough to allow chips through so I cut out every other piece to make bigger openings. Chips now go through and I haven't lost a piece of sandpaper in several years.

If you have an old fan cut the grill to fit. Put some hinges on it so it lifts up or down or sideways whatever you want. I am sure they sell fan grills. Find an old fan in a dumpster or garbage someone is throwing out.

Next idea downspout wire strainer or gutter guard. Just stick it in the collector pipe. Probably the easiest thing to do.
