Questions & Answers

Can electrical box be positioned at end next to joist ? I want to use same hole as light fixture box that was nailed to joist.

I am replacing a plastic light fixture box that was nailed to the joist and want to use the same hole. I need the new bracket to allow box to be positioned very close to joist to be able to use same hole in ceiling.
Asked by: John
Yes, the Box can slide next to the Joyce. The box is still and the threads won't strip like the plastic ones do

DOES this work for installing a 70# fan on 24" center between joists?

Asked by: Handymanhelper
Even though a Westinghouse rep supposedly answered this question in the affirmative, their answer does not pass the common sense test. If the product only supports a stationary light fixture weighing 50 lbs or less on 24-inch centers, then why would it support a moving fan weighing 20 lbs more than that under the same conditions? If the permitted load for a light fixture is reduced from 150 lbs to 50 lbs when going from 16-inch centers to 24-inch centers, then at least the same 1/3 reduction should be expected for a fan. Therefore the load bearing capacity for a fan on 24-inch centers would be expected to be no more than a little over 23 lbs (70 / 3 = 23.3) and is probably less when torque is factored in.

Can this be used in a wall instead of a ceiling?

I'm trying to install a new light fixture in a wall which doesn't have a junction box. Would this work in the wall?
Asked by: edeandrea
The Saf-T-Brace is not designed to support wall fixtures.

15.5 cu. in. Retrofit Ceiling Fan Saf-T-Brace is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 51.

I wanted to replace the light fixture in one of our bedrooms with a ceiling fan, but once I had the old fixture removed, I quickly realized the existing electrical box was not rated to support a fan and we needed a replacement. The location of the ceiling joists made the 15.5 cu. in. Retrofit Ceiling Fan Saf-T-Brace just the right product to solve this problem. Installation is a breeze as you simply pass the brace through the hole in the sheetrock, rest it on the sheetrock between the joists, and hand rotate the tube until the teeth lock firmly into each joist. (Ensure that the square end of the tube is over your hole and NOT the expandable side with the screw) You then rest a small bracket over the tube and center over the hole. Next, punch out one of the holes in electrical box, mount it to the bracket, and you’re done! The only reason I’m rating this product 4 stars instead of 5 is that one of the included bolts was slightly damaged out of the box, but I had another on hand to replace it. Note: You do not need to have attic access for installation; however, since I do have access, I snapped a couple pictures and verified the installation from that perspective.

I bought this in two sizes because I was not sure which I needed but I found them more difficult to install than similar braces I have used in the past. (Also, while Home Depot shows this as a Westinghouse brace there was nothing on the packaging that had any reference to Westinghouse. I am not exactly sure of the name but it was something like Consumer Electric.) The two sizes had different ways to attach the junction box once the brace was mounted. One method was almost impossible having to try to attach bolts from the underside into two holes in the bracket above the brace. The other was a little easier since the bolts hung down from the bracket and you only had to push the box up over the bolts then attach nuts and tighten. Neither matched the Westinghouse installation video on the Home Depot website.

I ordered 2 units, both were missing pieces, I was able to make one from both units. I don't know whether this is a manufacturer problem or a H.D. problem of people returning items without all parts. I ordered these online and picked up at customer service counter. I don't know this for a fact but it seems to me that H.D. has a policy of filling online orders from returned items or items with damaged packaging, as other online orders I have placed had similar issues. I now check all orders before leaving the store.

All you do is cut a 4" hole, slide the bracket up there, center it and twist until it's tight, install the hanging connector, screw in the box and you're done. The trick is to make sure the bracket is centered to the hole and also don't wire through the knock outs that are near the connector screws (you won't have room to screw on the nut). The box spacing to the drywall opening is perfect which allows for a seamless fixture install to the ceiling.

Amazing how even little details are thought of: the screws in the brace are magnetic which helps hold the box in place when putting the nuts in place. Great piece of hardware!

Con: cannot be locked internally from rotation and therefore "wiggles" in the direction of rotation (up and down in picture). This can be a problem with fans. Solution: secure by fastening/connecting to drywall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product when you can't get attic access. We chose to replace the standard light fixture in the living room with a ceiling fan. The old box wasn't rated for ceiling fans, and where it was, was not accessible through the attic. The hole happened to be right beside a ceiling joist, which made me nervous. I wasn't sure how it would hold up, or if it would hold up. We followed the directions and once it couldn't be tightened anymore, my boyfriend basically put all of his weight on it to make sure it would hold, and it did! I am so glad I did my research before we tried to just install it without this. I highly recommend this product!
