Be careful!!Received the fan in good shape but was surprised to find that instead of 3- 3" down rods there was only 1. I was not aware that you can not combine downrods so I thought you could put 3-3" rods together to make a 9 " rod. This is not true. I believe that the specs should read, " 1- 3" rod included with fan. Other than needing to go out and purchase longer rods I'm satisfied. Nice looking fan and works well.

Another Best PurchaseAnother great fan. This one had no issues installing, went up quick and easy.
Can't use the remote I purchased extra with the wall witches, no big deal. But a great fan.

disappointedThe screws to mount the canopy to the ceiling mount do not fit. The threads are not correct. Do not know what thread they should be. My husband used a pair of vise grips to get them in part way. thats how difficult those screws are. Then the trim piece that snaps around the canopy will not go on because the screws can not be tightened down as they should because they are the wrong ones. It would also help if the pkgs had labeling on them instead of playing guessing game, especially with what screws actually go where etc. This is not first fan we've put up, but this definitely was the most difficult and looks tacky due to screws being wrong one and not able to use trim piece because of it.
