Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hampton Bay Ceiling Fans when an extension downrod needs to be purchased separately We bought a Hampton Bay ceiling fan which included a 4" downrod. The only downrods HD sells are for Hunter fans and the Hunter downrods are not compatible without removing the treaded end and drilling correctly aligned holes. I would not have bought this fan had I known the downrods being sold by HD do not fit the Hampton Bay fans. Now I see where others have had the same problem. I don't understand why HD doesn't provided downrods compatible with Hampton Bay and learn I guess. I am a big fan of HD but am disappointed with this situation. November 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 12" Hunter downrod Good product except one thing. Home Depot's little chart in the store says this rod will work with Hampton Bay fans. Well, it will, but not without a little work. The rod diameter is just ever so slightly larger than the "ball" that goes into the ceiling mount. So, it takes a little sanding of the inside of the ball to get it to fit. Don't force the rod in. You won't get it out. And don't sand the rod. You'll mess up the finish. It can be done. Just takes patience. December 11, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extended fan in our family room This item was easy to install and matched the fan we bought. September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works fine We actually needed one that was about 6" long but this is the smallest that Home Depot carries in my town. We ended up cutting it in half and re-drilled the hole for the pin and drilled/tapped the hole for the ground wire. It worked just fine out of the packaging but the wife wasn't happy about how far it extended into the room. January 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not much to say, but it worked as expected. As I said no much to say because is a simple item, great product July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Installation & Looks Great I found a great deal on my Hunter fans elsewhere, but the only downside was they didn't come with the down rod. I ordered and paid for them on line and went to Customer Service to pick them up which was done in a jiffy. My husband put the fans up in no time, and we are very happy with the way everything looks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The right material for the job. I used this downrod because of its color. It was a perfect match, and easy to install. September 24, 2013
