Can this be used in a 2x4 stud wall, as opposed to a 2x8", 10" or 12" joist situation? We want to mount an 8 pound wall light fixture which is simply too heavy for an old work box fastened to the wallboard.
Asked by: apexdave
It might work for that, probably not as good as having a 2x4 going across. This is designed for the load to be pulling straight down, perpendicular from the ceiling joists. Mounting a heavy fixture in a wall with this will put more of a side or twisting load on it.

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

i seem to have an exiting one installed which wobbles (rotates) around the brace access - as if the ends have come loose - or stripped - or something. it makes the junction box unstable however, i cannot see how the box on the old one - is attached to the brace there is a screw for the ground and there are two POSTS coming out - which i believe are for teh ceiling fan base - and a knockout screw around which knockout where the wires come in ..; but NOTHING on the box looks like it is screwed onto the base bracket IF there is one it is hard to tell. ;( making this very easy job for a PRO - very difficult for a weekend - sit-at-a-desk-all-week novice like myself
Asked by: Al
If you have a finished ceiling, you may have to open up the space to each attached beam. Sounds like the brave needs to be completely replaced.

15.5 cu. in. Retrofit Ceiling Fan Saf-T-Brace is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 100.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product + fix for narrower studs We're big fans of these saf-t-brace retrofit braces and have installed a total of 5 in our home: 3 for ceiling fans and 2 for heavier chandeliers we didn't feel comfortable hanging without extra support, all retrofits. These braces are very easy and effective. Use the plastic cover over the box to trace your hole. Cut out the hole and insert the brace through the hole. Twist with your hand to until both sides claw into the studs, then continue your fan or light installation as normal. Takes about 5 minutes to cut the hole and install the brace. We took off a star for 2 reasons: 1: its difficult to get it perfectly level and 2: you need to have a minimum of 16 inches between the sides of your studs, but many older homes (like ours) have less than 16. Here are 2 easy solutions: Leveling: Place a small magnetic level along the length of the rod to help you level it Narrow Studs: This metal is light enough to cut with a hacksaw. Unscrew the two sides from each other. Cut a few inches off the screw side and a few of the rod side, smooth the edges with sandpaper or a deburring tool, then screw them back together. Overall, highly recommended, as demonstrated by the fact that we've purchased 5 and had no problems

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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works, but needs improvement First - there are two versions of this product - one made by Westinghouse and one made by Commerical Electric. Both have similar packaging. I bought this at my local HD and it was the Commerical electric version. DO NOT BUY this unless you need to do your remodel asap. There are better products on the market and if you can find the Westinghouse version, it is better. The biggest problem with this device - attaching the junction box to the cross member via the small brace is virtually impossible with the screws provided. Do yourself a favor and buy 3 inch screws. On my first install with this product I ended up taping the brace to the cross member and then have 90 minutes of swear words I finally got the junction box secured to the cross member. I vowed to never use this product again. Fast-forward two weeks and the wife wants a light hung asap for a party (we are in the middle of a remodel). I bought this same product from HD in town and luckily, this time I had a small access panel to my attic so I set a brick on top of the brace to hold it down and get the screws in. Once mounted, this product performs great and my fans have zero wobble. But with some small modifications this would be a much better product.

The first thing you need to know is that you do not need to install the Westinghouse 15.5 cu.in. Ceiling Fan Saf-T-Brace with the junction box in the center of the bar; you can locate the box anywhere on the square section of the bar. This is very important in cases like mine in which the plastic junction box to be replaced was simply nailed to a joist (or a roof truss 2by4 in my case) above the ceiling. I installed the bar with the screw-thread end against the 2by4 *opposite* the box, then attached the new box to the end of the bar where the old box had been. My only issue was with the plastic insert provided for the hole you punch out in the metal box, to keep the metal from chafing into your conduit (with the expected dire results). The instruction sheet didn't mention it, so I had to figure it out...and I could have used more than one, but I found a way to made do. But that's not worth taking a star off my rating. Otherwise, you'll find that the hardest part about installing this unit is getting the old junction box out. A shower of blown-in roofing insulation added to the entertainment of my installation, but didn't affect job completion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Westinghouse version also no good for sloped ceilings Previously, I posted about this product not being useable on sloped ceilings because the mounting screw posts are diagonal to the slope of the ceiling instead of at 90 degrees to the slope, preventing the fan's down rod from hanging straight because the mounting ball, with its anti-torsion groove misaligned, can't rotate in line with the slope of the ceiling. Westinghouse contacted me, asked to see a copy of my receipt. I thought, "How nice, they are going to compensate me for the billable time I lost due to their faulty design". Instead, they came back and said the product I bought was Home Depot's brand, not theirs, and asked me to change my review to make that clear. Checking on Westinghouse Lighting website, I see pictures of their version with exactly the same design flaw as the Home Depot brand, so no, my review still stands with one more star removed for trying to weasel out of their error.
