Rock solid Works really well. The previous owner of my house had installed ceiling fans with no brace. The junction boxes in the ceiling were not even connected to a beam so were just being supported by the ceiling drywall. The fan was unstable but I just thought it was because it was an old fan. Went to replace it and saw the issue was the install. Used these braces and the new fans are rock solid.An interesting tip: On one of my installs, I found the beam width in the ceiling was too small to fit this brace. I was able to easily take the brace apart and cut it down to a shorter length (using a hack saw with metal cutting blade) and it works perfect. Basically: unscrew the one end all the way out (it's basically a long screw) then use a screwdriver to pry the end of the main square bar (where the screw-end goes in). Then simply make two cuts to shorten to desired size. Cut 1) the square bar and cut 2) the long screw. Put the end cap back on and screw the long screw back in and you're good to go (it was really easy). Again, this is only needed if you run into a strange ceiling beam set-up. 5Nice Easy Project I was quite skeptical the first time I saw this but I did read all the online reviews and their suggestions so I had a pretty good handle on what to expect. I did do a "dry run" before I even attempted the project. The worst part of the project was taking down the lightweight garbage the electrician installed during the build. Once that was out, I did extend the unit a little before placement, 16" on center, slid it into the existing hole, you do have maneuver it a bit, made sure the feet were correct and twisted. I did only go hand tight because in one review it said they used a wrench and broke it. I had already punched out the hole on the housing for the electrical, slid the bracket on, lined everything up and started the nuts by hand that attached to the housing, finished with tightening with a socket wrench, careful not to over tighten and strip, like stated in one review, and away I went with putting up the ceiling fan. Understand that I have no electrical or building background, I watched the video a couple of times and truly it was a piece of cake. 5Great brace I replaced my large fan in the Great Room and wanted to take the old fan and upgrade another room that still had the cheap white and gold fan installed by contractor 20 years ago. Unfortunately, the cheap 20 year old fan weighed nothing, thus it was supported by a plastic box. This plastic box would never hold up to the MUCH heavier fan I was installing. This brace was perfect and worked like a charm.One thing I wanted to note is there was a version of the brace already in the ceiling for the 20 year old fan. I feel like this is probably typical for a replacement situation. What this means is you will have to plan on going into the attic to remove the old brace. It's not as simple as just putting the new one up in the hole. However, I don't mind going into the attic and I liked the fact I could install this thing from above, making sure both sides get "bite" into the rafters. The directions say don't install with a wrench, but I did because I couldn't get a "bite" on one side without cranking on it a bit. I think they are trying to avoid the brace from bowing when cranked too hard. I think there's a sweet spot, which hopefully I found. It would be impossible to see without getting into the attic. YMMV. 5A Handy Retrofit Solution! This worked very well. I can't compare it to any other brands or models, but I feel pretty sure that my ceiling fan is now held very securely in place between two joists, rather than being held up by the drywall of the ceiling! It was pretty easy to use, but I can say for sure that it's harder than it seems like it will be, as is most electrical work. It looks like everything is going to be easy-peasy, but when you have those thick, hard to bend wires that you have to feed through and force into place, things get unwieldy quickly. My biggest issue was with the bar blocking the box because of the way the wires were coming out of it (or the romex connector). It eventually worked ok, though, and I am happy with the result. There is a little bit of wiggle in the box because the square bar will still turn slightly after it is installed, but as long as the ceiling fan is installed tight to the ceiling, it's not an issue.Comes with only one romex connector for the box. I had to run out and buy a second. 4Perfect for replacing a chandellier with a ceiling fan. Last year I took down a chandelier and replaced it with a ceiling fan. I should have replaced the mounting bracket but it was hard to deal with it through the 4" opening so I just used the existing box. I could never get the fan to mount flush with the ceiling and it always wobbled when on high speed. "There must be some better way to make this work," I thought. Finally I discovered the Saf-T-Brace, ordered it with Amazon Prime, received it a couple of days later and was ready to redo my previous patch job. The hard part was getting the old mounting bracket out of the way. It used thin enough metal that I was able to nibble through it with side cutters and then bend it out of the way, after removing the junction box.. Somewhat difficult working through that little hole, but not terrible.Then came the easy part: I extended the Saf-T-Brace to about 22", stuck it through the hole, positioned it over the opening and twisted the bar to extend it until it was tightly jammed into the ceiling joists. It was really solid! Though I didn't try it, I'm sure I could have done a one handed chin-up from it without a problem, were I strong enough. Next I slipped the holding bracket over the bar then opened one of the cable feed-throughs in the supplied new box, inserted the plastic cable clamp and slipped my wires through. The handy little magnet piece made it easy to get the included box fastened on -- and I was good to go. Back up the ladder to rehang the fan and now it is tight against the ceiling without a trace of movement when running. The Saf-T-Brace is a well made sturdy product, that installed easily, worked as specified and I'm very pleased with it. 5Westinghouse Saf-T-Brace for ceiling fans. I have installed five of these braces for ceiling fans. I just want to add a couple of thoughts/hints for your installation. Use/purchase an Oscillating Tool. It will make removing the old box, metal or plastic, much easier. (you'll use it for other things, trust me). With the Oscillating tool, you can cut the old box out, and cut the nails off, that were used to hold the old box in place. Now, the instructions state not to use a wrench to tighten the Brace into place. Once I have hand tightened the brace, I cannot turn it tight enough to trust it to hold a heavy ceiling fan, through the 4 inch hole. I always use a wrench to turn the brace one more time around. Then I check it for movement, and if needed tighten it a little more. I want the teeth on the end of the brace to sink into the wood joist. Just my opinion. 5Best Tool For The Job I waited an entire year to install a ceiling fan because I did not want to have to crawl around in my attic to install a wooden brace between the ceiling joists to support a fan.I saw this device on an episode of Ask This Old House and it looked like just what I needed.The spacing between joists is about 24 inches, so this required max extension.One thing that I found was that the threads on the rod are pretty coarse, and so it was a bit difficult to turn the bar without the rod also turning.I suppose I could have tried using some WD40, but that was Plan B if I could not get it without.Also, until the triangular 'feet' were set into the wood, they tended to turn out of place.So, it took a bit of patience, but after about 5 minutes or so it was installed.They also provide a small magnet which is brilliant as it hold the junction box to the brace while attempting to get the screws into the bracket to secure it to the brace.Once the ceiling fan was installed (max weight for the rated capacity of the brace) it was solid.No wobble at all.I have another fan to install and will definitely use this again.I have also recommended this to some friends and they also find it the best tool for the job. 5and I'd like to think I've matured as a homeowner This Saf-T-Brace is legit. We just recently moved into our second home, and I'd like to think I've matured as a homeowner. In our first home, I replace all three ceiling lights in the upstairs bedrooms with Hunter fans. At the time, I drilled the braces straight into the ceiling joists. When we sold the home, the inspector noted that each of the upstairs fans was not secured well enough (i.e. they wobble at high speeds). At the time ... I had no idea there was a right/wrong way to install ceiling fans. I'd like to think I'm a pretty smart guy ... although not safely securing the fans was a poor decision.So once I found out about these braces ... and subsequently found (via home inspection) a kitchen fan that also wasn't installed correctly in our new home, I ordered this one. It could not be easier to install. Once you position the brace in your ceiling and tighten, 2 screws brace the fan receptacle to the brace (then 2 more screws adhere the fan itself to the receptacle). Taking the old fan out, I noticed it was basically braced before by one diagonal screw into a joist. Jeez!I fixed it with the help of this brace, you can too. No more wobbling! 5Fantastic Brace/Box for Ceiling Fans These are easy to install although I had attic access. I've used three for ceiling fans in bedrooms at my house. Each holds very solidly. If installing from within the room, there is a small magnet that holds the box to the bar and the screws that you have to tighten down will not push up. Also, I like that this product allows for the box to be all the way to the side of the bar if your joist happens to be close to the hole in your ceiling. I'd recommend for anyone installing heavy fixtures. 5Quality Product Solves a Problem This is a problem solver. I removed a overhead light fixture in the kitchen to find that the wiring was just pulled thru a hole in the ceiling. There was no electrical box and the hole was not next to a stud. This product was the answer. I simply cut out a larger hole about 4 inches in diameter. Then, I inserted the steel rod thru the hole and extended the rod to reach the distance between the studs by rotating it to unscrew it. Next, I simply hand tightened the rod to secure the claws at each end into the wood studs.Next I secured the box to the rod with the flange attachment. The box has a magnet attachment that holds the box to the rod while connecting the flange attachment (very helpful in freeing up both hands to get the job done).Tip: Determine the distance between studs and then extend the rod to an inch or so less that that distance prior to inserting the rod into the hole. This lessens the number of turns needed to secure the rod to the studs after insertion into the ceiling. 5
