I tried balancing three fans with this kit. All three fans are perfectly balanced now, but they are balanced with the visible clip that is supposed to be used temporarily to determine the placement of the permanent weights. The permanent weights that are intended to be installed out of sight do not weigh the same as the temporary clip.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mary Fan Blade Balancing Kit
I bought a beautiful Pineapple Ceiling Fan from Home Depot a few years back. It has recently started to make a loud noise. A friend of mine told me to buy a "Fan Blade Balancing Kit" to correct the loud noise - to balance my fan. The Only problem was that I was Not able to use the "U" shaped tool provided to see where the little weights needed to be placed on the fan blades Because my Blades for my fan were too thick!! So, I looked around my house for something to replace the "U" shaped tool....and found a plastic potato chip clamp. Sounds crazy - but it worked.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bobd Clip does not weigh the same as the weights!
I was pleased to use the clip to locate the spot where the weight should be installed. After installing the weight at that location, the fan was very unbalanced. I then weighed the clip and found that it was only 3.5 grams while the weight was 5 grams! This kit failed in the most basic way. I was able to make it work by removing the incorrectly located weight and sticking the remaining weight much closer (50%) to the motor than the clip indicated. Sadly the kit only contains 2 weights, which cannot be removed without damaging them. This would be ok if the clip and weight were the same. A balancing kit is so simple and it is amazing that this product is being sold.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ilikecheapfixesbest If you have a small wobble, I am sure it would work!
I bought this to try and fix a very wobbly fan in my office. In normal circumstances, I am sure the balancing kit would be fine. In my case, I need to replace the entire fan. We had to do extensive painting and repairs in the offices recently. The fan was taken down for the painting and was put up again, but a part was/is missing, so I will need to buy a new fan.
