Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great! I needed to drop the location of the fan further away from the ceiling to create more circulation. The on-line service folks said this was the one to go with, not the one I thought I was going to order.... They were right. It looks great and fit very nicely. No problems May 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is perfect and does the job. Just recently finished putting up a roof over my existing patio. The fan and extension rod I purchased puts the finishing touch to enjoy my patio. The fan creates a gentle breeze that makes it comfortable sitting on the patio ...even in the Texas hot summer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Need this to install a fan on vaulted ceiling Does the job, this is just way too expensive for a piece of painted metal tub with a hole! September 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hunter downrods Hunter downrods are not a good fit for the Hampton bay ceiling fans. Not sure why you can't buy a hampton bay downrod, but alas you cant. When using the hunter downrods it is necessary to drill a hole that will fit on the hampton bay ceiling fan. When used in conjunctions with a Hunter fan, terrific fits correctly. August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wanted 24" only 18" in stock I installed 3 52" fans at our yacht club. 24" downrods would have made the fans more effective, and I was not going to drive another 40 mi to the next store to get longer ones. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adequate It is a downrod--what more can I say--installer had no problem July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect size and strength I purchased this downrod along with the purchase of a new Hunter fan for our living room. The strength and durability of this downrod is amazing. The fan does not wobble one bit while running on high! May 16, 2013
