I have only 14" between the joists. Will this fit? If not, can I cut 1" or 2" off the bar?

Answer: 
The product itself is 14", and extends quite a bit beyond that, to like 24". The 937 is made for 16-24' widths.

Answer: 
Ceiling joists are standardized to 16" ON CENTERS (or sometimes 24"), so the actual space between those 2x4 or 2x6 vertical boards is going to be just about 14" or a little more. You should be fine. If not, most such hardware should be 'customizable' - to some extent. If still not sure, try the manufacturer's Website, look for detailed description and photos.

I was wondering whether this would work with i-joists or whether it is just designed for solid lumber joists.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A lifesaver for a retrofit! I needed to relocate a light fixture in order to center it up properly on a new kitchen table. Nothing worse than all the trouble to move a box 9 inches! I needed an innovative product that would allow me to hang a heavy light fixture and not require any additional holes in the drywall for installation. This baby was the ticket! It's sturdy and easy to install (watch the manufacturer's YouTube video). It's strong and well constructed but I did notice the way that the saddle tends to wobble a little on the bar even after installation. It wasn't a big deal in my case for a light but same say this can lead to fan wobble. A simple addition of a set screw would be a simple deign fix for this. In the end it was a lifesaver!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Retor-Brace yourself! Excellent product for hanging a fan after the walls have been put up. Claws dig in tight, and do not move. I probably could have done pull-ups from my floor joists holding onto this bar....I didn't attempt though. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Why can't all products be this good? This box is nothing sexy or outlandish. It's just an electrical ceiling box, but for doing old-work projects, this is indispensable. I bought 4 for a kitchen/living room remodel I am doing. The bars are solid, parts well machined and tapped - all needed parts are included. A little planning allowed me to get these shipped to store for about 3/4 price of the ones stocked at the store. I didn't install any fans, but these things are pretty beefy - I'd have no trouble putting a 50lb fan on one of these boxes. December 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointment Easy to install. Bar is very strong (to include the end "feet" grips on joists. HOWEVER...there is NO WAY to prevent the electric box bracket from rotating around the bar. Of course, once you screw the electric box to the bracket, the box will prevent anything close to a full rotation. However, the box/bracket assembly is still free to "wobble" around the bar. So, of course, once you install and turn on the fan, it wobbles. It's not going to fall down, but it's still super-annoying. I tried several tricks to prevent this, but nothing worked. There really ought to be some sort of set screw, better bar geometry other method, or other method to prevent this. Bottom-line: I recommend buying some other brace. October 31, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Depends on your situation The whole purpose of this bracket, is so you don't have to go up into the attic. If you have no insulation between rafters this bracket will probably work great or the rolled in pink insulation you might be able to push the pink stuff up and put this bracket in. I have the 24" of the blown in stuff, I ended up with a laundry basket of insulation on the floor which fell threw the 4" outlet box hole, before I gave up and went up into the attic.The bracket is very strong, probably strong enough to hang on, but there is no way to tighten up the outlet box, it will still spin around no matter what you do causing the fan to wobble.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RETRO-BRACE WITH 1-1/2 IN. CEILING BOX Purchased these to install 3 new 52" ceiling fans in our lakehouse. The original ceiling boxes were installed on one side of the room which required the wiring be relocated to accommodate a center-mount ceiling fan. This Retro-Brace helped make the process much simpler. The installation is about as trouble-free as you can ask for. Very solid once it's cranked down tight between the joists. Very solid once the fan is mounted. Should hold up for many years. July 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reasonably priced and easy to install I bought the RACO old work box to replace a ceiling light box that was being used to hold a ceiling fan. The box was sagging and causing a real wobble in the fan. It took longer to remove the old light box than it did to install the RACO product. Installation went very quicly and when done, the ceiling fan box was about 1/16th of an inch above the bottom of the ceiling. The ceiling fan was reinstalled and it worked great with no wobble.
