Answer: 
I don't recommend this for the job. I would think you need 2 of the dual suction cups tool instead of single cup to be on the safe side.

Thank you for your inquiry.
These suction cups are designed to hold up to 12 lbs. (each suction cup), so 2 would not lift 50 pound piece of glass.
If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
Thank you and have a great day.

Would this suction cup handle be an appropriate tool to remove a lense from a ceiling fan?

The ceiling fan is manufactured by Lytex Industries. It has an embedded lense at the base which is somewhat curved but NOT flat. I have replaced a light bulb in another fan in the house but this one has been quite problematic.

Answer: 
Very good question Paul. If it's glass and it's small, probably, but being curved, I am not sure. The rubber material is slightly curved on the tool, but really the only way to know is to test it directly on the lens. Whatever it is, the surface has to be smooth... textured surface will not work.

Answer: 
It will only be effective on a flat surface. Anything curved and you will get a weaker suction (if you even get one). The force vectors need to be perpendicular to the cup.

Answer: 
Paul, the suction only works on a flat surface. Kind of like a big version of those little suction cups for devices on your windshield or bathroom mirrors - so if there is any curvature, it won't create a bond.

unfortunately this wont work for you, this needs a flatter then flat surface to be effective. As an example, I installed a marble tile floor and 4 pieces of the marble slid off this and shattered and I had very good suction. I'm not sure how the fan is manufactured but there should be screws or even a port to use a screw driver to pop the lens out, if you can provide the model number i might be able to Read More

Thank you Paul for your inquiry.
We would not recommend the suction cup as an appropriate tool to remove the lens from your ceiling fan. We do not have a tool that would be able to do this. We would recommend that you speak to the staff at your local Home Depot store who may be able to suggest an alternative tool.

Answer: 
Yes, I bought two of these for that exact purpose. At first I thought they were a little over-sized for the job, but after I pulled out the glass I was thankful for the extra heft of the suction cup, which definitely made it easier to handle the glass with accuracy. I think smaller suction cups could be more dangerous. In short, buy these for easier iMac repair.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holds more than it claims It claims to lift just 12 pounds, and that could be due to liability issues. I used two of these to insert Peak Tempered Glass panels in their aluminum railing system. The glass is 60 lbs for a 6 ft piece and we had no issue using these to get the job done. I was going to rent some for 9.00 a day and these were cheaper and I own them now. September 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Off Label Use My wife is a porcelain artist and uses these as plate holders when she's painting a porcelain plate. She attaches the suction cup to the underside of the plate where it becomes a sturdy handle while she paints the front of the plate. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very useful suction cups We used them for installing 12" X 24" floor tile. This made the handling process so much easier. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Holds everything I originally bought these over a year ago for handling windshields. They worked great, even on the curved surface, and I was able to remove and accurately install several windshields, with a helper of course. Later, like a lot of people, I found that they work great for removing iMac screens! I've used them to help move a giant 65 inch plasma TV, and remove a large bathroom mirror. I expected it to slide on the heavy mirror, but it did not. I make sure that the cups and surface are clean, and never have a problem with them pulling off. We left them on a windshield for a couple hours and they were still tight, although I expect they would eventually bleed down. One feature that I really like is that the "on" function is done by putting the handle together, which means you can not accidentally disengage it while you are gripping the handle. August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Essential product for removing or placing unframed glass We had a whole greenhouse worth of unframed glass to remove, some tempered and some not. The job would have been impossible and dangerous without them. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great For Removing Glass Screens From iMacs. Works like a charm! A very solid-feeling tool. Get 2 and easily move dangerous pieces of glass around all day long! August 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smart purchas! Excellent for laying down large and small tile helps keeps a lot of glue of the fingers. I've used it for removing old tile that are loos and you cant get under them. I recommend having one of these as a part of your floor tile kit. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lifesaver We could not get the emergency window back in place on a Gulfstream 650. This allowed us to pull from the outside. I am 260 pounds and as hard as I could pull on it it never broke loose. June 24, 2016
