Customer Questions & Answers

I installed it exactly how you are supposed to! With only 1/2" drywall the box is not flush with ceiling. What can I do?

Asked by: Ds
Is it recessed too far, or is it poking down into the room? Did you perhaps install it upside down? If you measure the distance from the bar to the screw plate (where the removable tabs are) you'll see that it is, indeed, 1/2". Also, the code allows a 1/4" recess to be compliant, and the screws are long enough to accommodate this. If this is the case, be careful when tightening the fan support so as to not crack your drywall.

do you have the one for after sheet rock is installed ?

simular to this one , but has two pins on either end.
Asked by: Larmer
Saf-T-Bar is for new construction only. However, Westinghouse Saf-T-Brace can be installed through the hole in the drywall for the electrical box. There are two models of Saf-T-Brace that use a standard 1-1/2" deep box. Model #01010 has a round bar and installs with a screw on each end, and model #01100 has a square bar that installs with a tension mount and has prongs on each end to secure to the joists. Both of these products are designed to work only with wooden joist construction.

15.5 cu. in. New Construction Ceiling Fan Saf-T-Bar is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite fan rated box. It's very sturdy and the price is right. A couple of things ... This is my favorite fan rated box. It's very sturdy and the price is right. A couple of things to note, though. The construction consists of a smaller square tube that slides inside a larger tube. When extending the tube to accommodate your rafters or trusses, make sure that the box is mounted on the larger tube (you may have to rotate the Saf-T-Bar 180 degrees to do this). If you are dealing with truss joists at 16" on center, you may have to cut the tubes slightly to make the Saf-T-Bar fit within this relatively small span. Very easy to do with a hacksaw or portable band saw. Also, if working with this from the attic side of things, you will have to remove the little stop tabs on the screw plates before mounting. Again, easy to do by bending them back and forth a few times with your pliers. The 4 screws that are included are sufficient to mount this Bar, and the choice of Phillips or hex drive make it very convenient to do while in a hot attic!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Falls short Raco sells an almost exact product but with easier adjustability and superior construction. The price is about the same but the quality of the mount is superior to Commercial Electric brand. The Raco product is easier to adjust and the box is more securely attached to the bar. I had several 80's recessed lights in which I was able to cut down the mount bar so it would fit inside the 10'' square fixture. This saved me from a tear out and new drywall on the ceiling. The commercial electric box is riveted to the bracket and is hard to adjust to center. It is also free to move and has no way to keep the box from shifting with vibration from a ceiling fan application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Had to put in 4 new ceiling fans I had access to the attic so I was able to use this bracket i cut out the Sheetrock where I wanted to put the box then installed it from attic it was easy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Cons: They have 8 screw holes, but only come with 4 screws. I bought a few extra screws, to make up for it. It's a challenge to squeeze this between 16" joists when you're crawling around in an attic. Pros: I've hung two of the four ceiling fans that I plan to hang. This bar provides a tremendous amount of support and the fans I've hung are solid and level. It's reasonably easy to install, but any challenges are mainly due to it being in a hot attic and has nothing to do with the actual product. I would suggest using a hex head on your cordless power drill to install if you want to hammer the screws home painlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy Bracket Very well built fan support. Square tubing used on both extensions. Depth is self-positioning. Includes everything needed, including a bushing for the wire knock-out. Also come with a plastic cover so you can leave anything not immediately needed inside the box until the final installation (keeps paint, dirt and dust out tool!). Very nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Very sturdy. I only used three screws on each side and it was very sturdy. The fan I used was a low profile fan which also helped as it is right on the ceiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work fine I am the super of 50 apartments in Manhattan, NYC and use these on every turn-over and every renovation to safely install ceiling fans. Ceiling fans make the apartments more attractive and therefore more rentable. I have installed at least 50 of these brackets in the past 4 years, they work perfectly, and they are priced right. I only use the new construction bracket so I can not give any review on the retro-fit bracket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sturdy enough and cheap screws I have trusses that span 24 inches apart so I was skeptical when I read that this will not only work for trusses 16 inch apart but will extend to work for wider spans like mine. Anyhow, went to the store and checked the product in the box. Seemed sturdy enough and decided to give it a try. My other option was to actually buy some framing lumber and build a truss running across instead of using this. Took it home and installed it in the attic. It only came with 4 screws eventhough there were total of 8 holes (4 on each side to attach to the truss) I found 4 of my own screws and finished installing this. Guess what? The extended portion was loose and never quite tightened up...that is due to extending to fit 24" span rather than 16". My fear was proven right. Decided to see if I could make it work. However, the screw broke when tightening the fan box it came with. Cheap screw. The weight of the fan depends upon these two screws. Now I have to take it all off and will go with my original plan of framing cross support instead of this cheap junk. Back to the store this goes and I will have my peace of mind.
