This brace works with all ceiling fans, so you do not have to worry about size or compatibility. The brace's three teeth easily twist and lock into the ceiling joists, its threaded multiple lead adjusts quickly, and its square tube allows for easy turning.

Customer Questions & Answers

DOES this work for installing a 70# fan on 24" center between joists?

Asked by: Handymanhelper
Even though a Westinghouse rep supposedly answered this question in the affirmative, their answer does not pass the common sense test. If the product only supports a stationary light fixture weighing 50 lbs or less on 24-inch centers, then why would it support a moving fan weighing 20 lbs more than that under the same conditions? If the permitted load for a light fixture is reduced from 150 lbs to 50 lbs when going from 16-inch centers to 24-inch centers, then at least the same 1/3 reduction should be expected for a fan. Therefore the load bearing capacity for a fan on 24-inch centers would be expected to be no more than a little over 23 lbs (70 / 3 = 23.3) and is probably less when torque is factored in.

Can this be used in a wall instead of a ceiling?

I'm trying to install a new light fixture in a wall which doesn't have a junction box. Would this work in the wall?

Can electrical box be positioned at end next to joist ? I want to use same hole as light fixture box that was nailed to joist.

I am replacing a plastic light fixture box that was nailed to the joist and want to use the same hole. I need the new bracket to allow box to be positioned very close to joist to be able to use same hole in ceiling.
Asked by: John
anywhere you cut the hole in the dry wall, you can position the junction box,

15.5 cu. in. Retrofit Ceiling Fan Saf-T-Brace is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 40.

It states that you do not have to access the roof space which if you have no insulation is true but if you have insulation in the roof space is neigh near impossible to go up through the space and adjust. We ended up in the roof space to install and that was a pretty easy installation and a good product. I gave it three stars only because it stated that you do not have to go into the roof which is not necessarily true.

Good product, I am an electrical contractor and have used this product many dozens of times,pretty much the only thing you can use to install ceiling fans after Sheetrock is up, from the description on the bad reviews It sounds like they were installing it wrong, probably should have read instructions

Cut the hole, expand the bar, connect the junction box, run wires, connect the fan. You got to love this. I bought two and installed to ceiling fans.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works, but needs improvement First - there are two versions of this product - one made by Westinghouse and one made by Commerical Electric. Both have similar packaging. I bought this at my local HD and it was the Commerical electric version. DO NOT BUY this unless you need to do your remodel asap. There are better products on the market and if you can find the Westinghouse version, it is better. The biggest problem with this device - attaching the junction box to the cross member via the small brace is virtually impossible with the screws provided. Do yourself a favor and buy 3 inch screws. On my first install with this product I ended up taping the brace to the cross member and then have 90 minutes of swear words I finally got the junction box secured to the cross member. I vowed to never use this product again. Fast-forward two weeks and the wife wants a light hung asap for a party (we are in the middle of a remodel). I bought this same product from HD in town and luckily, this time I had a small access panel to my attic so I set a brick on top of the brace to hold it down and get the screws in. Once mounted, this product performs great and my fans have zero wobble. But with some small modifications this would be a much better product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product + fix for narrower studs We're big fans of these saf-t-brace retrofit braces and have installed a total of 5 in our home: 3 for ceiling fans and 2 for heavier chandeliers we didn't feel comfortable hanging without extra support, all retrofits. These braces are very easy and effective. Use the plastic cover over the box to trace your hole. Cut out the hole and insert the brace through the hole. Twist with your hand to until both sides claw into the studs, then continue your fan or light installation as normal. Takes about 5 minutes to cut the hole and install the brace. We took off a star for 2 reasons: 1: its difficult to get it perfectly level and 2: you need to have a minimum of 16 inches between the sides of your studs, but many older homes (like ours) have less than 16. Here are 2 easy solutions: Leveling: Place a small magnetic level along the length of the rod to help you level it Narrow Studs: This metal is light enough to cut with a hacksaw. Unscrew the two sides from each other. Cut a few inches off the screw side and a few of the rod side, smooth the edges with sandpaper or a deburring tool, then screw them back together. Overall, highly recommended, as demonstrated by the fact that we've purchased 5 and had no problems

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but strong I installed a new ceiling fan/light with this device holding it in place. It was so easy I wasn't sure I had it right. I cut the hole and put the support through it and with a few turns it was done. I hung the electrical box and fan/light to this square bar and finished the wiring and I was through.

I'd gone into my local Home Depot store intending to buy another, and more expensive ceiling fan bracket for a fan I was installing. The store associate suggested this one, and pointed out its features. Not only was it less money, but worked better for me than would have what I originally thought I wanted! Thanks Home Depot!
