Answer: 
There are two screws that attach the box to the cross piece (piece that is about 3 inches long and the shame of a U with wings; and the wing-shaped u piece rests on the cross bar. The screws go through the box and in to the wing-shaped u piece and then tighen. The largest problem with this is that you have to get the screws lined up just right and have enough pressure on the wing-shaped u piece for it to Read More

The screws go through the box and in to the wing-shaped u piece and then tighen. The largest problem with this is that you have to get the screws lined up just right and have enough pressure on the wing-shaped u piece for it to hold down. As I said in my review, this is the biggest problem with this device. I would buy the westinghouse model of this, not the commerical electric. Read Less

Answer: 
You cannot cut or manipulate this brace in any way, this would cause a safety issue and will also void the warranty of the product.

You should contact a local building inspector or electrician for assistance. The size of the box is determined by the size and number of wires being used.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy with Confidence This is a product that actually works. Sturdy, well designed and very easy to install. Buy it with confidence! August 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worked as advertised made it possible to replace a light fixture with a ceiling fan in a space without access to above the ceiling access. i'm satisfied. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellant Value. Does the job needed. Would use again. Was looking at installing a ceiling fan in my apartment. Found out the outlet box was only for lighting and not fan rated. Went to the local Home Depot and wanted the lower cost one. Wasn't in stock. But they matched the price on this one. Worked well. Only comment is the box was higher than the drywall. Not sure if I tightened the brace correctly (with legs resting on drywall) or if my ceiling was a little thicker. Put a spacer (fender washers) to compensate. Every thing worked well and was fairly quick to install. (most time was spent clearing out the insulation to get a clear view/path to the studs.) I would use again or recommend a friend to use. May 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by easy to use works excellent in old work. not meant for new construction. May 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saf-T-Brace The safe-t-brace that I installed was so simple. I had to cut a 4 inch opening and then slid the brace into the hole, ensuring it was cock-eyed or anything, and then tightened it down with a wrench. I also installed this between 24-inch ceiling joists and it still felt very strong. May 8, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WELL BUILT-POORLY DESIGNED This box is sturdy but does not perform well. The metal teeth “walk “as you tighten the strut so that it is nearly impossible to get level and square at the same time. I solved this problem by placing two screws through each of the plastic tabs at the strut ends so that it could not move as it was tightened. Even after the strut is in place, it can still turn, meaning the fan can go off axis. I solved this by pop riveting an extra bracket to the side of the box and then screwing it to the joist. (Negates center mounting box between joists. The 10-24 bolts that mount the fan would not go into the box. At first I thought it might have nylon inserts to prevent loosening but when I examined the threads, they were damaged. I sovled this by taping the box to 10-24 and then adding lock nuts to each bolt where it protruded from the top of the box. Two hours later . . . . Don’t waste your money or time. You would be better off mounting the box to a stud piece nailed between the joists. JSmith April 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for what I needed I wanted to install a ceiling fan in my living room and since I have a vaulted ceiling, access to the attic space was prohibitive. The Saf-T-Brace was the perfect solution for me. It was relatively easy to install, and works great. I could hang from it, so I know it will support a ceiling fan easily. I highly recommend this product. July 14, 2015
